Eight years ago I was inspired after watching the films of Run Wrake to make some animation that utilized images from the Ladybird book series.

With no script or storyboard, I had no idea what the characters were saying when their lips moved, and had no idea what it was all about, yet vaguely hoped that all these elements would magically come together later on.

I was working in high resolution and had completed many months of work when my daughter knocked the hard drive to the floor by accident. Everything was lost, except a rather poor quality copy of the rushes that I had saved on another system.
