Production Basket & Roald Dahl Museum

I've not had chance to do much this week as we've been working on a live-action film set with the producers at the film school. It's been great fun trying out all the different roles on set (camera assistant, sound recorder, props master, etc.) but I'm glad to be going back to the lightboxes next week.

On another note we went to visit the Roald Dahl museum yesterday in the village of Great Missenden. Great Missenden is a quintessential English village, with lots of teashops and a tiny post office surrounded on all sides by rolling hills and fields, very relaxing and peaceful. Roald himself used to live there and you can see the influences for lots of his stories in the buildings and countryside. The museum itself is full of memorabilia from Roald and also lots of illustrations from Quentin Blake (another of my heroes) so very inspiring. On top of all that all children over 5 get a free 'Story Ideas Books' full of tips from Roald on how to write stories and technically since I am over 5 I got one as well!

Next week we begin our storyboarding workshops at school so lots of drawing and redrawing to do, I can't wait!
