I’m about 5 foot 6. Too heavy, by gawd. Back when the universe and I were less than half our present size, I was a teenage animator at a little studio in the unfashionable Western spiral sprawl of London. My first proper job, fresh out of art college was making Letraset captions for industrial, medical and corporate films. One day I bumped into a man who was about to become the producer of the TV version Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and he wanted some animation. The rest was history. Well, not his story, but my story. I spent the whole of 1980 working on that show and what a year that was! It led to so much more…
This blog will frequently reference that hugely formative experience, and hopefully trawl through all that followed. Hitchhiker stage shows, documentaries, an illustrated book, behind the scenes, in the wings and under the table. Plus, of course, there was Blake’s 7, Terrahawks, Roger Rabbit, More Than 30 Years in the Tardis, Dalekmania, Sci-Fi Channel, Space Jam, Space Island One and the London Film & Comic Con. There will be exclusive behind-the-scenes stories, interviews, photos and scrapbook oddities galore.
I hope you’ll stick with me, and please feel free to comment or ask questions. I’ll do my best to reply, asap.
