The film chronicles Inocente, an irresistibly likeable young woman who has overcome poverty and homelessness and won widespread recognition for her whimsical, colorful artworks.

Facilitated by Joshua Gaunt & Simon Ripley Documentation of an INSET day held at Shiphay Primary in Torquay looking at ways in which print and animation can be used together. The participants used monoprint and collagraph techniques (w/out a press) and combined them with 2d stop motion techniques. Simon and I also tried out our bicycle wheel zoetrope with the teachers and there are some very interesting results here. The ability to mass-produce images using printmaking (as seen w/ the cardboard tubes) is a real benefit for working in a school setting using animation. A lot can be achieved in very little time by merely changing colour, letting a print evolve through repetition or printing out entire sequences. I look forward to trying this out more in the future. for more info on Double Elephant Print Workshop: www.doubleelephant.org.uk+ More details

This video is a record of artist William Daley creating a new ceramic pot while discussing in a conversational approach, his ideas about art, making art and the continuing struggle to keep invention fresh.+ More details
