I would like to share with you a special project that ANer Ian Harding of the UK has been working on for a long time. He's been sharing his progress with us on the Forums for quite a while now and I'm happy to report that he's finally finished the first episode of "Zey The Mouse" entitled "Flying a Kite". It's a stop motion animation project that he created by hand. Every aspect of the film was meticulously built with attention to the finest details. It took Ian 10 months of hard work including 3 months of filming. You can see more of Ian's work on his YouTube channel. Congratulations on your accomplishment Ian and hope to see more from you soon.
