Kick-off time! Today I have decided to embark on a short film tribute to the late, great Sir Stanley Matthews - to be screened on the 100th anniversary of his birth, February 2015. It will be a real tough challenge to animated a film in that time but so inspired am I by Stan's life and philosophy that it seems his centenary is too good a moment to miss. The question is how to tell the story. My gut is telling me that I should return to a similar format that I used for my first ever, BAFTA winning biopic - "HOKUSAI ~ An Animated Sketchbook".
