Posted in Other doings on January 16, 2011 by nicbeard

Upswing’s – ‘Fallen’ (which we made animated scenes that the performers inhabit) is coming to the london mime festival at Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room 24th 25th 26 Jan 7.45pm for more details please see here —

As a way of an anti-trailer for this performance here are some images and sketches that we made that didn’t get used for the final piece…..


Happy Christmas from the paper cinema

Seasonal greetings from us, to say a big thank you to all involved and to all that have supported us over the last year and the past six. We are posting the recent performance at the V&A in London of Nightflyer with puppeter Caroline williams and music by Ed Dowie and Chris ‘Little Boat’ Reed. As we believe in the live performance we do not post many recording of the shows, we are popping this up over december to thank you  and hope you enjoy, hope to see you in 2011.

bring me tea or coffee

Slightly off the paper cinema doings – but here is a little drawing i did for Paul Hanford’s new blog on music and musing’s, and said i would put a little link in. As the paper cinema use to play out with his band ‘sancho’ couple of years back and he has played in bands with ed dowie, chris little boat and kieron maguire…. good fun, mind your head low flying lanterns!! i’ll enjoy the read, as much as i did the conversations lent against a 5 bar gate on the way home from gigs. bring me coffee or tea
