We had a programme rammed with great animation. Louis was dressed a giant felt Overlap eyeball. Max tore off Louis' face. And we were joined by Oscar-nominated CalArts alumni, Siqi Song.

Siqi's films are packed with feeling, humour, and a lot of felt. As well as winning plenty of awards, they have screened at the likes of Sundance, SXSW, Annecy and Ottawa.

We also got to see preview of Room To Read, a collaboration from Siqi and our very own Second Home Studios.

We had an All-Star, Topflow, Flatpack Festival Special, and we were nearly at capacity with over 250 people in the room. Was Louis dressed as a shiny volcano? As a prawn? Was is 'Topflow'?

The film programme was rammed with inspiring work, with guests coming from Edinburgh, London and Poland! Congratulations to Amber Iles for winning a print from Will for her Topflow submission.

A LOT had happened since our special guests Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson were last at Overlap 3.5 years ago . We saw how Ainslie’s early tests turned into over a year animating outdoors for his BFI funded short, Shackle. Fresh from speaking at Pictoplasma, Will showed how obsessively deep he has got into Blender.

And if one Overlap wasn't enough, the following day we had a Q&A screening of Will and Ainslie feature documentary, A Cat Called Dom.
