The 2nd Cranbrook Video Festival, on the theme of Wellbeing, took place yesterday at the Crane Surgery in Cranbrook, Kent, and it was a great success. Many thanks to all those who submitted and let me use their work, and a special thanks to Carolina Khouri for turning up to the event – she got a spontaneous round of applause for her video “Ball on a Beach”. Below is a link to the final programme for the event, which was chock-full of good things, and images from all of the videos.
The London-Worldwide Comedy Short Film Festival – https://www.facebook.com/worldwidecomedyshortfilmfestival/ – took place on 12th Feb at the Hackney-Attic Picturehouse in London, and my animation The Squeaker was in it, along with a host of other stuff.

The Under-Secretary for Health cooks up a fiendish new inspection regime for doctors’ surgeries, and Dr Hairy gets an extremely bizarre phonecall from his mother – with hilarious results!

A short song/video about the tribulations of a professional busybody – an inspector of doctors’ surgeries, in fact. This will eventually appear as part of the third series of Dr Hairy videos (collectively entitled “Dr Hairy and the QCQ”), but hopefully it also works as a stand-alone. Loosely based on “The Seeker” by The Who, which is a particular favourite of mine. Made using InkScape, Blender, Kdenlive, Audacity and the Gimp.
