Blu-Tak was a quick camera setting test for a few seconds. As well as being a little bit of fun.
After a couple of years, I started to try out new media and production styles. Lego being a popular one (as there was plenty around). Still using the spot the sumo in these productions. I created a business SumoFilms as the little doodle had become quite the symbol for me.
And even though I now work with Lego, I use my original doodle of him and refer to him as 8-bit man due to the pixelated drawing in MS Paint.
Make movie making fun.

After a few animated creations, I put together this quick trailer for the channel (I think it needs updating now though).
SumoFilms.co.uk was founded 24th July 2013. With our first YouTube upload being a very quirky little production on the 31st July 2013.
Why SumoFilms.co.uk? This is a question that has a very simple answer (if you know me). There is another YouTube channel in existence. MisguidedSumo started in 2010 as a task of something to do when there is nothing to do. Doodles was how I used to refer to them. MS Paint and windows Movie Maker.
It was after the first few productions that I and a now interactive audience started to play a game. This game was fondly referred to as "spot the sumo". The character would be drawn in to frames and would sometimes be a single flash on screen that would need to be quickly spotted.
