We were back with a bang in our new home, Nortons Digbeth. Diddy Sweg played live music, with Antonio Roberts creating a backdrop of live coded visuals. And of course, we show&telled incredible new animation too.

Thanks to a pair of jumbo arms we kept things safely distanced. It was exciting to be in the same room as so many talented people again. Some filmmakers have shown so much animation that it was time they got more than just a standard badge. We've now got silver and gold badges, and even a trophy.

After a setback in Covid cases we were back online for our Christmas Do.

Thanks to everybody who took part. As much as I've hated running the online events, I'm really glad to have met so many new animation faces in the last 8 months.

We've got plans to be back big in May. Including all the usual technical mishaps. Fingers crossed to meet you all in real life then.

Using Zoom we were back in the Virtual Bar with a load of new faces and BFI Network's Alexzandra Jackson talking about funding.

Swatpaz made a return, we had some gatecrashing flat-earthers, and Ross Butter introduced IN PERSON. Actual human interaction!

I was dreading another Zoom event but it was fun and the community felt alive. It’s really encouraging to meet so many new and returning animation faces. Thanks for taking part and see you next time.
