What a happy bunch of young people! Clearly they can’t wait to get into The National Media Museum in Bradford. The taste of Yorkshire country air has stirred something in their souls and they’re bouncing off the walls! It’s an animation workshop today that explores the idea of Faith (I wonder if they have seen Bold’s film ‘Faith In The City‘?).

Whoa Ali – was it really that bad? So it didn’t quite hit the mark on exploration of faith, but the guys did manage to make some quirky stop-motion animations. Check out the project website to watch them in all their glory.

Seriously – I haven’t seen these guys so animated since they got here. We all had a bit of a heart to heart this evening, some honest feedback from the whole group – highlighted a few areas where we’ve gone astray, then a big culturally sensitive group hug and gee up for the last few days. It was great seeing everyone’s reactions as they watched a few of the films made so far. I’m really proud of everyone for being so honest on camera – I hope it shows.

And then they tried to make Tony and me dance to bhangra… not a pretty sight, especially as it’s been an alcohol free expedition. Off to Birmingham tomorrow to stay in a Quaker House, should be interesting…
