St. Trinian's Delay

You might have noticed the lack of posts recently, unfortunately the production has hit a major setback. I can't go into details and don't want to name the culprits because I am hoping that at some point soon the issue can be resolved. Unfortunately there are some people who don't want me to make this film. I had no choice but to put it on hold. This is not the end of this,  please do come back for updates.

But then something wonderful happened, I met Kate and John Searle, Ronald's children the other day. We spent a lovely morning chatting over coffee. Both of them have been extremely supportive of the film, they even gave me a folder of quality copies of some of the original St. Trinian's cartoons and a selection of Ronald's nib pens. Look at how each one is labelled carefully, you can tell how well organized Ronald was. Thank you John and Kate, I will treasure these forever.

Hello Mr Meyer,

Hope everything goes right for you despite this news .I respect your work so much,it remembers me doing celluloid when I was 10 or 1é years old, I thought all animated movies where done with traditionnal techniques and it further after that I knew the truth about Personnal computers ...When I saw your work on this ronald searle's tribute it was like diving into my "souvenirs" memories and Icannot say a word more sincere than thank you for that Uli and thank you for ronald, he diserves it so much.

I give you my blog adress take a look sometimes if you want and don't hesitate to contact me I would love to collaborate on some projects with you Uli.

Bye from France Paris, with sincere respect.

Its beautiful how nibs can be inspiring!
I am intrigued about the hold up, but I am sure there is nothing stopping the film, specially thanks to the openess way you have been constructing it/sharing, reminds me of how no one was able to stop this girl from taking pictures:
Too many people love what you are doing!

Got a message for T CAT....and NAT.
It's from THOMASVILLE about " Bridal Lingerie".
The label 's called LLANNERS and they got a pattern called MAPLES PRICK.
Their subsidiary is called OLLANNERS.
And they got such tremendous reviews from "Indiana German Heritage Society" , it went viral - Virginia.
And that took it to Moomen and Cattel who took it to Cochons - COCUK.
And New Zealnad took it up with TEEN SESSION.
Which came into SESSECTE.

Bless you, Uli! I just found out about this through a link...I need to 'surf' more. This will be (and I'm optimistic about its completion) a wonderful thing, and the clips you've posted are great - so very nice to see beautiful hand-drawn animation again.
I don't know if you remember me, but I did the Cookie-Crisp commercials for 8 years in the US, pre-Saatchi/General Mills. I admire your work immensely and hope to finally meet you. Have you been to the CTN Expo?
