Jim Parkyn has been working in stop motion animation since 1998 and with Aardman Animations since 2000. He has recently started his own small studio Fluff and Nonsense and if that isn’t enough, is the creator of ‘The Amazing Scene Machine’ an animated event experience that captures the magic of your event in clay and animation. He has long been involved in Feature Films, short films, commercials and series including Chicken Run, Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the WereRabbit, Pirates in an Adventure with Scientists, Shaun the movie, Creature Comforts and Shaun The Sheep series among many others. Jim is also an Aardman Ambassador, running workshops in model making and animation and team building events at many schools and venues internationally.
The Amazing Scene Machine is a Good Life Experience highlight for all ages, and this year Jim will give a talk on 'Finding the Play in Clay; How I have rediscovered my passion for plasticine.'
