Welcome to my Blog
My name is Daniel James
I have been making Stop Motion animations at home in my free time since I was thirteen years old. After showing my work to teachers at school they nominated me for a Vibe Award - Best in Art & Design 2005, which I won. After that I went on to win a Best of Darlington Award - Against All Odds in 2006 for the same set of animations.
When at college in 2007, I had a meeting with a member of the Prince’s Trust to discuss funding. They agreed to give me up to £1000 to make a short animated film based on Health and Safety starring my characters Viv and Mandy that will be shown in schools visited by that the Prince’s Trust. I’m working on that alongside my college work and plan to finish this year. In 2008 I also won a Top College Award at the Skills Expo for a new Stop Motion short film I did at home for a college project in 2007.
On here I will be posting images and telling you all how the production of my animations are going
