Happy July everyone! And do you know what that means? The CMC Karaoke Show is just a week away!

For those attending the Children’s Media Conference next week, we invite you to CMC’s famous karaoke night.

Want to get involved?
Well, all you need is one device to run Zoom (e.g. laptop/pc) and a separate device (e.g. smartphone, portable speaker) to play your background music and you’re good to go!

Only a few live singing slots remain, so email us at tcmckaraoke@gmail.com to save your spot before it’s too late!

Whether you choose to sign up in advance or on the night to sing along with us or sit back and enjoy the show, we look forward to seeing all you there.

🌈 Happy Rainbow Day, everyone!! 🌈

Here at Karrot, we support and stand allied with our LGBTQ2S+ community - everyone deserves respect and love for being who they are, and that’s something we stand firm on. 

So here we are, a wonderfully colourful rainbow of Karrots, wishing everyone far and wide a very happy Pride (and cake!!).

#Pride month is here, and with this comes our famous Karrot 'Rainbow Day' 🌈. However, as we haven't been able to unite in person this year as we usually would, we've decided to organise something special...

We thought, ‘why have a day…when we can have an entire week?!’, so here we are with Karrot Rainbow WEEK - a whole week of LGBTQ+ celebrations! There’ll be music, cake…all the fun things centred around love and compassion!

At Karrot we wholeheartedly support and stand allied with our animated LGBTQ+ community, and want to wish everyone a happy, safe and inclusive Pride.

Keep an eye on our socials for updates across this week of Rainbow goodness! #Pride2021 #RainbowDay #RainbowWeek

We hope you’re all enjoying this very sunny Tuesday!

As you may recall, we posted a little while ago about a super initiative called The Secret Story Draw that helps talented illustrators and animators of colour kick-start their career in the kids’ media industry. They’ve put together 3 sessions running over 3 evenings (15th, 16th, 17th June) from some of the best illustrators and animators working in the children’s media industry and guess what…they’re all free to attend!

The workshop sessions will focus on: Cut out animation, Character design and Environments and there will also be an opportunity for a Q&A with the talent running the sessions.

Today’s session at 17:30 involves a technical demonstration on Cut Out Animation by our own Director Rufus Blacklock followed by a Q&A from our Rigging and Layout Artist Julia Young!

Check out @thesecretstorydraw bio to sign up to today’s session and more from Jellyfish Pictures!
