Frank PassinghamFrank Passingham’s first sentient memory was being woken into the world by the smell of celluloid.  As a child he endlessly watched Yogi Bear films on an old Standard 8 projector to the point that his parents thought he may become brain damaged or even go blind.  The only words he could speak were: ‘Have you got any Pic-a-nic baskets Mr Ranger Sir?’ Experts agree that Yogi Bear never actually said these words …

In later years he made experimental films in Super 8 and 16mm and toured in Europe and the Far East with a multi media band called the Startled Insects.  Eventually he had to get a proper job and became a cameraman for Rolls Royce for several years.   Never tiring of getting high off of the smell of celluloid he has worked as a Director of Photography in the stop frame animation industry up until the present day.
