Tim Hope and friends


A massive thank you to Tim Hope for a wonderful screening and Q&A at London Animation Club last night. As you will see from these photos, the room was absolutely packed (50+ people?) with many people having to stand or crouch on the floor.

Having him as our guest was particularly delightful as I have wanted him to come and talk for many years. Most of the films he screened he’d actually finished for this evening, meaning that they also had their premieres there. Tim’s work is almost impossible to describe: it transports you to another place and state of mind whilst also being very very funny, all at the same time. How does he do that?

Many thanks also to Wayne Shepherd who talked about the origins of The Wolfman (which he voiced), to Andrew Bone, Tim’s co-star in the Tired Parents series and to Rob Munday for filming the evening. A proper write-up of the evening will follow soon.

Here is a video I shot on my phone, showing Tim and Wayne. Rob Munday’s proper film of the evening will go up on the YouTube channel soon.
