Sir Lovalot & the Dragon

Part tiny Cassanova. Part tin-can. All hero.

Pint-sized creative genius Ursula Warshaw's story tells the tale of an en-armoured and enamoured hero, Sir Lovalot, fighting outrageous fortune to find his true love...

My fifth animation for the Share A Story competition (and my first as a freelance animator). I love the characters Ursula created, and Carl Hadley's character designs are perfect for them.

Well done everyone, melodramatic chef's kisses all round!

For this year's competition, CITV even shipped in full-time legendary meme generator (and part-time legendary author) Michael Rosen to congratulate my mini-scriptwriter on her one-minute opus.
