Amblimation Reunion

  |   Colleagues, Feature Films

On August 21st, 2014 we had a 25th Amblimation Reunion at The Kings Head in Studio City, CA.

KingsHead

About 75 former colleagues and their partners came and we really had a lovely time catching up.

Robert Crawford put together a photo montage from the studio and they were screened across the back three screens in the pub.

Watching Screenings

Nick Fletcher edited together 45 minutes worth of studio footage and it also screened across the back…

We watched, yelling out friends’ names in recognition, laughed in jest at those in the room and clapped for those who are so sadly missed.

 

Robert spoke first and thanked those who had a hand in organizing the event (he did not mention himself – but a big shout-out to Robert for the photo montage, for adding to the contacts — & to his wife Kit for the lovely event photos [below & on the Amblimation fb page] ), to Stuart Campbell for securing an amazing venue, to Nick for preparing the video, and to the unmatched, behind-the-scenes help of Jill Hopper.

Steve Hickner came up with an envelope of unopened Amblimation pins (he’s had for 20+ years) to pass out…
Pins...!!
And spoke of Annie Elvin, “the heart and soul of the studio.”

Simon Wells & Phil Nibbelink gave a very heartwarming speech…
Stuart’s bombastic speech — I believe was for the introduction of Nick’s film…

And Robert came back — as we raised a glass to those who present — and to those with us in spirit.

Wha?
So I’d say we need to do this again soon.

Thank you all for coming — and to those who flew in for the occasion.
