So what did you do over the summer, Sarah?

Well, I'm going to disappoint you but at the circus, I didn't heave myself up to the tightrope, or get dressed up in sparkly outfits, but I did help to make this animation on just how the first ghost came about.



That's Holen under the sheet, btw - we were playing in the graveyard at midnight and it's a series of still photographs that Carlos magically put together to make a film. Call me naive, but I just didn't realise how animation worked before, I thought it really WAS a film, or that it would take about four hours of pushing bits of cotton wool about a half millimetre at a time in order to make those four seconds of clouds swooshing round the graves. Good though, eh?

You can find more circus videos here.

That's fun! I like it - especially the arm wrestling and the way the skeleton waves his arms about when he wins!

Yep, the more I look at it, the more I like it! They were very clever at the circus.

That's brilliant! Am seriously impressed! Love the idea you can become a ghost if you arm wrestle death!

Thanks Cally and Debi. Yep, Cally - how are your arm muscles?
