Sky’s the limit for Walsall Wood animator


The work Drew puts into his films is incredible. Image from Yamination Studios.

Just a quick one folks – later this afternoon on the Sky Arts channel will be the premier showing of Walsall Wood film maker and animator Drew Roper’s feature ‘At Issue’.

The program will be shown this afternoon (Wednesday 6th January 2016), at 4:50pm on  Sky Arts (Channel 223 on your Sky box), and it’s a wonderful thing by a very creative local lad.

Andy Roper (of Walsall Wood Football Club fame) said:

Hi Bob

I wondered if you were interested in celebrating with me and the family the recognition this local Wood lad is now getting for his animation talent.

He’s spent the last ten years or so building his portfolio and struggling in a very difficult industry, after a previous and successful graduation at Solent university in Southampton he is now getting his big chance. This latest short film is being shown on Sky Arts on Wednesday 6th January 2016 at 4:50pm.

Many thanks
Andy Roper

    • Sorry it was a bit last minute, Andy – I had it my head this was Thursday, not Wednesday, then realised a bit late.

      If Drew would like to write a small feature (or as long as he likes …) about his work and life, I’d be happy to feature it here.

      He really is a wonderfully talented bloke.
