Red Nose Attacks by Team Yellow Banana

 

Back in March 2017 Team Yellow Banana created a little video for Red Nose DAy.  It wasn’t aired at the time in respect to the victims of the terrorist attack in London.  The Team felt now was a good time.  We hope you enjoy this claymation v’s rubber stop-motion animation.

Stop-motion Animation ‘The Present – The Anguish of the Unexpected’.

A while ago one of our students told us about a time when he struggled to open presents given to him because of the unexpected that lay beneath the wrappings. He explained how it caused him such a lot of anguish and anxiety that he would just hide the gift in the wardrobe or under the bed.  He would keep checking it was there over a period of time but it would still take an enormous amount of courage to open the gift.  

This little stop motion animation created in Lego is about that experience.   The little lego-man in the film is worried about whatever is in the package and how will this change something?  How will he deal with the Anguish of the unexpected.

Originally this was going to be posted during Autism Awareness Week but wasn’t quite finished in time.  We hope you enjoy it.  Check it out on our youtube Channel or through our website at www.sparkyink.co.uk

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

SPELLBOUND - MYTHS & LEGENDS

 

 

Year Zero -Artists Visit Our Art Exhibition from Sheffield Cathedral Archer Project Charity.

Wednesday 9 November 2016 Russell Wall and Sparky Ink Studio welcomed contributing Artists from Sheffield Cathedral Archer Project Charity when they dropped by to see their work exhibited at West Studios, Chesterfield.  It was so good to hear the stories behind the creative pieces the artists had produced.  Of further inspiration was to hear about the new projects from crafts to singing in the choir that some of these guys were becoming involved in.  It was clear that some good friendships and support networks have been made between with the people that access this charity.

The Studio had the chance to talk candidly with the artists and we will be releasing a show reel in the next week or so.    The Exhibition has so far been really successful with a steady stream of visitors.  If you are in the area please nip in, grab a coffee and have a look at the work.
