Big World Cafe

For the titles to Big World Cafe, I sculpted the drummer and Liz Armitage the dancer. They were the caste in foam around a wire skeleton. Film below (followed by a cinema advertisement for HMV, which I sculpted the dog and modelled the miniature props)

Both were directed and animated by David Lodge for Snapper Films. Big World Cafe was a weekly programme and the first to feature world music. It launched the careers of Mariella Fostrup and Jules Holland
