Last week for three days I ventured to deepest darkest Devon for my first course with the amazing Forkbeard Fantasy (http://forkbeardfantasy.co.uk/), as part of my R&D for our show 366 Days Of Kindness.
We’re lucky enough to have received Arts Council Funding to make this new show, and I’m reading Aristotle and the Dalai Lama and trying to remember what I did when during the year!
I have long been an admirer of Forkbeard Fantasy’s madcap theatre/animation/puppet/interactive film shows (these words do not do justice to how amazing they are) and this few days was mostly spent learning the basics of Final Cut Pro with Robin Thorburn. By the end of three days I had three films! One is posted here, more to follow… but before that here’s some pics of their studio and some of the amazing props made by Penny.
In the summer they run week long courses, all accommodation and grub thrown in, so check out their website and join me in the summer if you fancy a bit of steampunk film/theatre/multimedia making. Except I shouldn’t say steampunk because I don’t think they like it…
