He’s currently working on the next instalment of The Lego Movie series and developed with his wife, Demelza, the children’s brand Welly’s Wonders. Check an example of Adam’s 2D animation here: https://vimeo.com/19253735

Pre-set banquet dinner 7:30pm to late

$30 a head (2 types of pasta, 2 types of pizza, salad, coffee), BYO alcoholic drinks (no corkage fee). The fee for kids having dinner with us is $20 per child.

Drinks can be purchased at the bar of the restaurant, but at an additional cost NOT covered by the $30 a head fee for the dinner itself.

As it is a pre-set dinner, if you have special dietary requirements, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can enquire about alternative options with the restaurant and ensure you’ll have a nice dinner with us…

To book your spot or ask questions, email me at Hagen_Cartoons@hotmail.com

NOTE: This is a catered event, and I’ll need to let the restaurant know the exact number of people coming for them to buy & prepare the food. To that effect, be aware that if you have to cancel with less than one week notice, you may still have to pay otherwise, I’ll have to pay for you to cover the cost. The best thing would be maybe to pre-pay, but we can discuss when you book by emailing me.
