Head to Head

Education   special schools  

Spring, 2002
Fox Hollies School, Birmingham

Staff and students at Fox Hollies Schol were brave enough to work with Stan’s Cafe on our first venture into Stop Frame animation. Wehad a brilliant time learing together. Working to a commission from Birmigham City Council weproduced an animation, a spoof ‘making of…” video and edited together a trailer that can allbe watched in a loop as the end of one contains the strart of the next. As well as being ourfirst venure into anmation it was also our first project working in a Special School and it proved tobe an inspiring experience.

Head to Head “One boring day an Orange idea is born in a flash of lightning. Deep in someone’s brain it turns into an astronaut, climbs into a rocket and sets off on a mission to travel from head to head spreading inspiration”
