Bronze Torc Shortlist

I've known about this for about a week - and it's been really hard to keep it quiet!

Our web series Manannan has been shortlisted for an award at this year's Celtic Media Festival to be held in St. Ives, Cornwall during the first week of April. Culture Vannin's Learn Manx app is also up for an award - called a Bronze Torc.

I'm hoping to be able to go along, at least for the awards - to soak up some festival atmosphere. :)

Elsewhere on Mannimation, we've been working on some 3d visualisations for IoM College's Market Hall site - soon to be the home of the arts degree program. We'll shoe some progress of that on here soon.

We've also been busy with teaching animation at the college and running various workshops at the wonderful Family Library in Douglas.

We missed a blog update last week, so sorry for that - just too much to do! Consider us told off.

Back next week,

Gary at Mannimation.

It's aliiiiiive! Baron Frankenstein would say.


That's been a lot of work over the last few days and it's not finished, not by a long way. I've still got a showreel to complete and now the site is up I really have to start pushing the promotion.

We now have a twitter account, a facebook page, a youtube account (no uploads yet - soon though) a website and of course this blog. I can already see where I'd like to make changes but we'll attend to those later on.

So, now the real work starts - putting the word out! I'd best get back to it but there's lots to look forward to, including regular Mannimation progress updates, CGI and animation news, simple how-to articles and lots more.

See you back here soon!
