When I first started art college I approached a number of the compulsory workshops that defined my first year of study, with the lacklustre attitude of a grumpy teen. Woodwork and ceramics sessions were wasted because it just seemed more exciting to muck about and spend the evening in the pub like a lazy oaf. So I’ve got HUGE respect for Jose Miguel Mendez, a young student from LCC who’s managed to produce this little beauty of an animation as his first foray into stop-motion – and it was part of a compulsory college workshop! I’m not saying this is the most polished piece of film you’ll lay eyes on today, but respect is due to a man who’s clearly channeled a whole lot of energy into learning a new skill, and learning it really, really well.
