Brendan visits Blue Zoo Animation

August 22, 2017

Yesterday, ten year-old SketchBetter student and budding animator, Brendan and I took a trip to London to meet Tom Box, co-founder of multi-BAFTA winning studio, Blue Zoo animation. Brendan joined SketchBetter in 2016 and at the age of 8 had already taught himself how to make stop-motion animations by watching youtube videos. He has a huge collection of hand-crafted plasticine characters and heaps of character drawings - many of which he has invented himself. It's because of this natural talent, self-drive and his incredibly kind personality that led me to begin mentoring Brendan.
