Here is a man! Lifetime’s new animation is unveiled – and goes down a treat!

An animation about the ‘Big Questions’ in life – featuring a family man called Guido who has a strong, distinctive, rich Northern accent!

One Big Question may have been just what people would make of it when the official unveiling was carried out!

Well……..thankfully ‘Here Is A Man’, Lifetime’s new animation video about the questions we all face in life, went down a storm!

The video (shown below) was introduced as part of a presentation put on by Lifetime’s Communications Director William Bottomley at the very popular ‘ConnectedBiz‘ event at The Civic in Barnsley.

Made by Marsden-based Fettle Animation, ‘Here is a Man’ features the Bard of Barnsley, Ian McMillan, as the narrator.

Other speakers included Richard Dennys, who has over 20 years’ experience starting, funding, running and selling digital businesses; James Boardwell, who founded Folksy in 2008; Lee Evansthe Managing Director of Vital Network Solutions, one of Yorkshire’s leading business IT service providers; Katie Portman, an award-winning, Barnsley-based blogger, freelance journalist, PR and copywriter; and digital entrepreneur Mark Asquith, the co-founder of Barnsley-based creative agency HACKSAW.

All delivered inspirational talks.

Lifetime’s Twitter feed also proved to be very busy following Bill’s talk and the unveiling of the ‘Here Is A Man’ animation:
