Hi,
Just over a year ago, many of you saw my ’Queen : Live At Megley Stadium’ video – a stop motion project featuring Queen in toy form performing ‘One Vision’ live.

Well this year, I’ve decided to dig out the figures for another video – ‘Queen – Thank Mego It’s Christmas’. Not a live video this time, but something more festive.

Made once again with vintage ‘Mego’ figures, this time we travel back to Christmas Day 1987 ....

Many thanks, glad you liked it.

The live animation film from last year is at

Some of the camera work and animation isn't great - this was one of the first films we made. I still like the stadium set though.

thanks
