We had a great evening out at the launch of the Explorer’s Guide to the Creative Quarter at Nottingham Contemporary on Monday 12th October. Great food, music, people and the launch of a fantastic little free booklet highlighting the interesting and talented bunch of retailers and artists as well as cafés, restaurants and venues that add to the buzz and energy of the Creative Quarter. Pick up a free guide and introduce yourself to a few hidden gems.

We are delighted to be nominated for Best International Short at the Toronto Animation Arts Festival International (taafi) for ‘Jack the Astronaut’. Produced as one of CITV’s ‘Share a Story’ animations ‘Jack’ was also one of the BAFTA winning animations at the Children’s BAFTAs in November 2013.
Bottletop is delighted to be part of the production team that won a second BAFTA last night for CITV’s Share a Story in the Short Form category at the BAFTA Children’s Awards.
Bottletop is delighted to be nominated again as part of the production team for CITV’s Share A Story which won the Short Form category at last year’s BAFTA Kids Awards. The results will be announced at the BAFTA ceremony on November 24th. Fingers crossed.
Our pal and occasional cameraman Ben Wigley is raising funds via Kickstarter to finish his fabulous documentary film featuring Paa Joe, a coffin maker from Ghana. Paa Joe creates coffins that are amazing works of art – Coke bottles, red hot chilli peppers – you name it, you can be buried in it. Ben needs some cash to help finish the film so please give him a quid. Every little helps!
