A few weeks ago, Sparky Ink Studio Student; Lewis began creating a Fun and Amazing Fan-based Star Wars Stop-motion animation. The animation was created using Lego MiniFigs (found under the bed) and the snowmen were created in super brill detail by support Holly. The Story evolved into a small adventure where Luke Skywalker and his team of Snowmen (some Zombie) capture The Dark Lord Darth Vader – Luke’s dad. The snowmen mean business.
Lewis worked with Studio Digital Editor Josh to create some create terrific Visual Special effects to show Darth Vader’s demise and create some wintry scenes. Lewis turned Luke Skywalker into a bit of a rapper with the famous line “You are NOT my father!”
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.
From September we will be offering some new Fun sessions on Saturday afternoons for kids aged 10+. These are social and chilled out sessions designed to engage the participants in Digital Story-telling through Animation and/ or Games Design. We also chill out together in a few multiplayer games in relaxed atmosphere.
From September 2017 Sparky Ink Studio will be launching some new sessions aimed at young people aged 15+ who would like to learn, develop and share new digital and creative skills, as well as socialise. The Studio uses Industry Standard Software. The workshop is Autism Friendly and disabled friendly. Places are limited. Pre-Registration is required.
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 ouryoutubeChannel or through our website atwww.sparkyink.co.uk
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!

Team Yellow Banana completed test filming today for an upcoming stop-motion animation. Completed without any story-boarding and just using items knocking around the studio, the test animation became more of a brainstorming session played out on the table top with a camera as a witness.
This funky little test shoot will be made into a short stop-motion animation with special FX to turn up the heat a little.
The stars of the show are a miniature Star Wars ATAT, his loyal pilot and a clay-made creature from Planet X (the legendary ‘not sure if it exists’ Planet that is doomed to hit Planet Earth). With the situation showing the Doomsday Clock as at 3 minutes to midnight; lust for fresh fruit – mainly Banana’s is rife.
Watch this space for the progress and announcement of the finished animation.
