We had THREE main guests and a rich mix of incredible films. We had powerfully restrained films reflecting on the atrocities in Palestine, a view of what happens when a DoP becomes obsessed with Blender, a giant mechanical sassy finger, and a snake with an ass.


It was a sort of homecoming for  Michael Morgan, a senior character and creature animator currently working at Disney. Michael has been in the VFX for over 20 years. Starting on Clone Wars, he's since worked on the likes Black Panther, Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol 2, Venom and Spider-Man: No Way Home!


We'll also got to see BAFTA-nominated Visible Mending with the films producer, Tilley Bancroft, two days before the awards took place. The film was directed by Samantha Moore, and animated at Second Home Studios.


If that wasn't enough we were joined by Sheetal Thankey. Sheetal is a Animation Director, Illustrator and 2D Animator from Brum, based in London. We talking about working on everything from 'Hey Duggee' and 'Gumball' to commercials, and stepping out as a director.


Thanks to Max Priddy for being on the buttons and Thomas Pitts for the extra help.

This may have been our strongest line up yet. Second Home Studios gave their first public screening of Channel 5's Tweedy & Fluff. Hey Duggee designer Ross Phillips shared his work, and got us addicted to the rush of his specially made 'Stick'. We finished with an electronic AV set built from nature samples by Wildforms & Guri Bosh.


Louis also dressed as a sort of privet Bob Ross.


Our special guest was Oscar and BAFTA winning Peter Baynton. We chatted through his career leading up to becoming an Oscar winning director, as well as getting a meaty behind the scenes on adapting The Boy, The Mole, The Fox & The Horse for animation.

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.
