JAM is currently developing two new projects, SMEOP and Jurassic Steps (Working Title).
Simply Made Electronically Operated Poems
An animation project for forward thinking people even though its just poems spelt backwards.
'The Super Duper Mover Hoover did just what it said.
As soon as she had turned it on it hovered up the bed
It hovered up the curtains and the lamp stood at its side
And then it took the wardrobe with everything inside......'
JAM has just completed fundraising for SMEOP a series of four short film/animations with award winning animator James Price. What does a 9 year old need? What kind of product would they invent? JAM will be working pupils to create humorous poems about a new invention they have developed and designed; pupils will then have to create an animated short film to advertise their new invention.
SMEOP is a project developed with four schools (Primary and Middle) in Bridgwater, Bournemouth and Poole. Supported with match funding from Sedgemoor Learning Alliance and Wave Arts Education Agency. Awaiting decision from First Light.
Jurassic Footsteps is an exploration on film of iconic steps throughout Dorset linking with the Jurassic Coast, its history, stories and landscape. Animating steps in amazing locations whether they are man made or natural. Creating unique events in stop motion animation, slow motion film, dance and theatrical events all of which will have a rich colour palette which will paint colour and movement onto the iconic steps of Dorset.
JAM is currently fundraising for Research and Development funding for Jurassic Footsteps.
- JAM is also developing a sensory theatre show for babies and toddlers aged 0-2 years. The show will be a beautiful sensory performance for babies and toddlers under two years and their parents/carer's. Babigloo is a magical experience set inside an igloo, you will be taken on a sensory journey through the snow in this participatory performance filled with a dancing penguin, puppetry, original music and specially commissioned 360 Degree animated projections.
The show (in a structure which can be sited indoors or outdoors) will begin development in Autumn 2013.
