I've decided to change to name of my short from "Washed up" to "Once upon a blue moon" (that title might well change again), since the action is now set in outer space.  

I've been busy making a spaceship from a garden water spray bottle with some deodorant sticks and some cheap plastic binoculars for boosters

It's still based entirely on one set, which I now have.  I got lucky and found an old unused curved one in storage, which I painted blue. The old robots just there whilst I finish the new one (which has the old ones legs!)

So I've spent the last few weeks in the studio and I've now finished animated my new film.  Now I've a few days editing, then I'll try my luck on the festival circuit.

Looking forward to seeing what you've done, Steve. The style is great, and the atmosphere you've created looks good too. :)
