We love animation at Flexible Options and run digital and stop-motion sessions. Each session is tailored to the individuals' ability and experience and is assisted throughout to tell their story. So far we have supported individuals to make both short animations as part of a first time experience and long digital movies.
Calum Payne the creator of animated cartoons such as "The Adventure Of Bimbo" & "Marvin The Robot Detective" is interviewed by Rebecca Cunningham. Originally aired as part of "The Adventures of Bimbo" Ep9 which can be found by following this link.
Callum is extremely talented and loves creating a stop-motion world based around the goings on of a place called "Apple Town". Callum's character Bimbo and friends have been on many adventures and each episode he produces is better than the last. Every episode is written, directed and animated by Callum and he also records all the voices for the characters and chooses which music will go with the scenes he has created.
Here we present a limited series created by one of our animators Tom Armstrong who is an extremely passionate and talented individual who works at an incredible rate. He has probably animated 2 films in the time it has taken you to read this.
Tom has this to say about the animated series.
“Here is my first look of my first mini-series project "Deputy Warmwell" Based on Warmwell by Parkdean This is my first Mr. Parkdean spin off into the series.”
Here we present Linda's first animation created at our Friday open session. After talking with Linda about what she would like to animate we helped her write a script. Linda then drew the characters and backgrounds required the started animating. One of the highlights of the animation for us is when Cartright utters the line “ha-ha, I win” which always gets a chuckle. It's an outstanding video and Linda was extremely proud of her accomplishments.
