RTS Awards

By | Video Production, Animation | No Comments

We had a fabulous time at the Royal Television Society Awards on Tuesday 20th November. We were nominated for a Craft Award in Post Production – great recognition for the work we did for the BBC on The Ashes promo. We saw lots of familiar faces, drank too many fizzy drinks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves even though we didn’t win this time!

Animorsels Stop Motion Special

By | Animation | No Comments

Our very first Animorsels event was a great success. Jim Parkyn, Senior Model Maker at Aardman Animation, was our guest speaker and gave us all a fantastic and amusing insight into life behind the scenes with Morph, Creature Comforts, Wallace, Gromit and Shaun the sheep. The audience also enjoyed a selection of stop motion themed films from around the world. Everyone received a lucky bag containing some spooky sweets and their very own morph modelling kit. We would like to thank everyone who supported the event, including the RTS, everyone who entered the MicroMorsels animation challenge, the bar staff at Antenna for being so helpful and Jim for keeping us all entertained.

Look out for the next event coming soon.

We were delighted to be asked to work with Carrick Therapeutics, a company making new discoveries in targeting aggressive cancers. Bottletop has worked with CEO Dr. Elaine Sullivan and some of her team previously at AstraZeneca and at Lilly so we have a good understanding of the way scientists work and the need for accuracy and the importance of non-disclosure.
