I was a part of the short film At-issue from the very early days of Yamination Studios as a Lead Stop Motion Animator. The film was the creation & passion of company founder Drew Roper & funded by Sky Arts & a successful Kickstarter campaign. Just below is the beautifully made behind the scenes documentary by director/producer Drew & the team. At the start of the documentary, I animated the Yamination intro logo which was the very 1st appearance & animation of the central character Bart Yogart!:

The Making of “At-issue”

The film is owned by Sky TV so isn’t online for the moment, but here’s the Teaser (animated by James Carlisle) & a sneak peek at the audition sequence (animated by Andy Biddle):

Bartholomew brought to life

A Birmingham animator is to have his short film premiered on TV. It's a coup for Drew Roper of Yamination Studios who has only been in the business since 2009. The film 'At-Issue' is based on a character called Bartholomew who dreams of Hollywood and makes a last ditch attempt to become a star. The film airs on Sky Arts at 1650 today. Drew has been talking to Satnam Rana.
