1. How To Catch a Bird is a stop motion short based on a childhood memory. It's the graduation film I made for my masters in animation at AKV St. Joost Breda.
    When I was eight; my dad taught me how to fish. He told me to take the worm off the hook after fishing, but I had no idea why. After fishing I forgot about the worm and left it dangling on the hook. If I only knew then what the consequence of this action would be.

    Animation by Vera van Wolferen
    Music by Gerard van Wolferen

  4. The RSA public events programme has launched RSA Shorts (thersa.org/events/rsashorts).  This new series provides a snapshot of a big idea, blending voices from the RSA public events programme and the creative talents of illustrators and animators from around the world. It responds to the ever-increasing need for new ideas and inspiration in our busy lives and acts as a shot of 'mental espresso' to awaken the curiosity in all of us.
     
    The audio of this RSA short is of Dr Brené Brown who spoke at the RSA on The Power of Vulnerability (thersa.org/events/audio-and-past-events/2013/the-power-of-vulnerability). She talks about the difference between sympathy and empathy and argues that to be truly empathetic you have to be vulnerable by connecting with someone's pain in yourself.  

    Animated and directed by Katy Davis (AKA Gobblynne).
