Barney Bubbles - the video has been spotted and some positive feedback

The internet is amazing!  The video has been linked to Facebook and the Barney Bubbles blog independently.  I have also had some postive feedback which has made the long hours pulling this together very worthwhile!  The Barney bubbles blog, as detailed below, has even linked my Blog and mentioned my name and Leeds College of Art.

There were three separate posts picked up independantly from Vimeo:

Barney Bubbles Inside Out in 100 seconds

Barney Bubbles Inside out from Lisa Whitaker on Vimeo.
This 100-second career resume has been created by Lisa Whitaker, who is currently studying graphics at Leeds College of Art.
The DVD – housed in an “inside-out” sleeve and accompanied by a poster – came out of a course brief for a collection of 100 design objects in which she compiled album sleeves, including Bubbles’ design for Imperial Bedroom by Elvis Costello And The Attractions.
“I am fascinated by this talented man and his links to other creative people,” says Whitaker. “My moving image piece Barney Bubbles Inside Out pulls together the research and is aimed at graphic designers, record collectors and music lovers as a way of spreading the word about inspirational figure.”
Whitaker’s backgrounder on the project is here.
