I always loved stop frame as a child, especially Wallace and Gromit. When I was 13 I went to the Bradford film museum and purchased a animation book called 'Cracking Animation' by Aardman. I used this book to help me make my first ever animation. My puppet was made out of Plasticine and filmed in my attic. This film was made whilst at six form and I received a A* for it as an extended project and was published in the Bolton News Newspaper.
