Bad Dog? Mini Claymation by David Lewis

Video

Earlier in the spring of 2017, Sparky Ink Studio was invited over to Derbyshire Autism Services Group Youth Club in Chesterfield to present a Crazy Taster session.  We had a fab time.

One of the young people there David Lewis made this little claymation and used the base colour white clay to great effect.  The assets for this mini Claymation were created on the evening and filmed straight after.  David had some animation experience before hand.  He was brilliant at working with the clay figures and filming to create a very smooth animation in such a small length of time.  Well done to David!bad dog

Bad Dog? This story is about a man who takes his dog for a walk.  The dog sees something and pulls away from the man pulling the man over when the lead snaps.  See what happens next…  The question is…Is this a Bad Dog?  Enjoy.  Please like and subscribe on our YouTube Channel.  Thank you for watching.

Another Crazy Taster Session: The DASG Rollercoaster.

Back in May the Studio visited Derbyshire Autism Services Group Youth Club in Chesterfield for another of our crazy taster sessions.

They were a lively bunch and not too shy of the camera. We had a fab time creating some human animation in the way of a Rollercoaster and some claymation; which will be posted on our channel in the near future.  Check out the film on youtube.

Our taster sessions are about engaging people in something that they are interested in but may not have the confidence to explore.  This Rollercoaster is quite time consuming to do and for the participants it demonstrates some great skills such as leadership, team engagement and trust, and not be afraid to engage and have fun.

A Crazy Fun Taster Session – Human Animation

As a Studio we regularly nip out and about to do taster sessions of the workshops that we offer.  Its a great chance to meet likeminded people at events and interact with local social groups.  At the beginning of the year we were invited to Chesterfield Autism Acceptance Group who meet at Monkey Park CIC in Chesterfield.

We had a really fun evening even though our technology was playing up everyone got together and made a Human Animation.  Some of the younger members were really intereted in the Stop-motion Animation and created a ‘Mario’ type Animation.

The Sparky Ink Team had a fab night and this is a good chance to say a Big Thanks for having us!

As part of Autism Awareness Week we have produced the footage of that night and messed around a bit with it.  It was great Crazy fun!!!  Check out the Video on our Youtube Channel ‘Sparky Ink’  Give us a like and subscribe if you can and check out our other vids.  If you’d like to donate for Autism Awareness Week please check out out JustGiving Page at http://www.justgiving.com/sparkyink

Taster Session with Chesterfield Autism Acceptance Group At Monkey Park.

Sparky Ink were delighted to be invited to meet with a new group of ‘inkers and thinkers’ in Chesterfield on Friday 13th January.  Local group Chesterfield Autism Acceptance Group; who meet monthly at the Social Enterprise Monkey Park which is based in Chesterfield, invited us to meet the group and run a taster session.  So we grabbed our gear and went over.  We were met by a warm reception of lively individuals who wanted to know more about what Sparky Ink Studio was about, the workshops we run and our involvement within the Autism community.

As part of the taster session we made a human animation with the whole of the group, which involved a chain of participants creating a ‘Abbey Road’ inspired crossing of the whole of the cafe, right in the heart of Monkey Park.  The group had no stage fright and worked well together responding to the camera in-between bouts of laughter as they created the animation.  The roars of laughter at the end of filming while watching the footage demonstrated the fun and enjoyment of participating in the taster. Over coffee and jaffa cakes our team helped share some of our skills and helped to make a ‘Mario’ inspired table top stop-motion animation with a few of the younger members.

The Chesterfield Autism Acceptance Group is a fairly new group and was started up to help support people with Autism and their families in the area.  As a Studio who is positive about Autism we were really pleased to have been asked to run the taster.  Not only is it a chance to meet new people but also to do something fun and take people out of their comfort zones to work together and participate is a group activity.  It was also good for us as a studio to get out and about and meet new people in the area.

Fantastic encouragement for all in involved!
