I met some wonderfully creative people at Glug Brighton on Friday night who told me about some great events to check out. So he I am doing just so...
Sara from Amination (http://www.animnation.co.uk/
) is hosting an event on Wednesday 14th July about the lives of Halas & Batchelor. Vivien Halas will be talking about their long list of animated films (two thousand of them!!!) including the award winning Animal Farm (1954), Ruddigore (1964), The Owl and the Pussycat (1952), Autobahn (1979), Dilemma (1981) to name but a few.
As far back as the early 1970's , John Halas was experimenting with the likes of computer animation & 3D stereoscopic animation - so he really was a true pioneer!

Thursday 15th July sees the launch of Kevin Meredith?s (http://lomokev.com/
) book Hot Shots. He gave us a copy at Glug and its a perfect read for any budding photographer. The event is at Add Colour, 64-65 North Road, Brighton.
Danny Hope has been giving me the low down on a big User Experience conference he is hosting on the 13th September. Full details and registration can be found at http://2010.uxbrighton.org.uk/
I also wanted to give a shout out to Adam who runs a well tasty blog called Create Brighton (http://blog.createbrighton.com/
) If you have creative news and it was made in brighton then I?m sure he would love to hear from you.
If you want to shout about events, or anything else creative for that matter you could do worse than posting it on the Glug Brighton message board http://www.meetup.com/glugbrighton/
Cheers for now
We are getting our thinking caps on for the next Glug and would love to hear your ideas. We should be back to the old venue The Basement in a couple of months.
