King of the Kursaal
8:28am Tuesday 19th April 2011 in Video
A CARTOON King Kong climbing over the iconic Kursaal dome and a monster using the Palace hotel as a piano are helping promote this year’s Southend Film Festival.
Southend-based animator Aaron Foster created the striking images as part of a short film, which also features a chicken playing block-stacking computer game Tetris with the University of Essex’s brightly-coloured student accommodation, London Road.
Aaron, 24, a graduate of South Essex College who produces his work under the name Gagaman, came up with the idea for the film while walking through the town centre.
