Charlie meets some amazing characters, created by children

Video

Here it is!  Charlie’s journey, packed with all of the fantastic characters that you created during the Sojo Workshop @ Nottingham Children’s Book Festival.

I will be announcing which character has been chosen to appear in the January 2014 production of ‘Charlie and the Cotton Wool Coat’, in a few weeks time.  Goodness knows how they’ll ever decide!

Today is the day your characters come alive! Not long now!

Good morning everyone!  It’s just past midnight as I type these words which means…today is the day that your brilliant characters will come alive.

Please check back at 6pm, before you go to bed, for a rather special bedtime story (made by you).

Here are some photos of a few more awesome characters 🙂

Sojo Animation ‘Character development’ workshop @ Nottingham Children’s Book Festival

On Saturday I had the pleasure of running a Sojo character development workshop for the Nottingham Children’s Book Festival ‘Tales from the Riverbank’.

I am now a very busy lady, animating all the amazing, new characters I have been introduced to, but I couldn’t resist putting up a few stills from the workshop.

Here the children are drawing, onto acetate, the character that they imagined ‘Charlie’ met (or perhaps didn’t meet) in the woods.

Three puppeteers prepare for their show. You’ll have to wait to see the actual show though 🙂
