When John Summerson´s friend Ty died suddenly, he and his group of friends decided to keep his memory alive trough an event Ty and Matt did once, while hangover: they found an discarded christmas tree in the woods, in February of that year, and brought it home to decorate with beer cans and biscuits. After the loss of his friend the next year, the group decided to honor him making a play about the event and called it Februarium, with his patron, “saint Dr. Februar”. Summerson made the event into his graduation piece from the Royal College of Art.
Currently working as a freelance animator, you can check his work here.
This may not be the kind of event for everyone, but it certainly was what this group needed to remeber Ty. So, Februarium!!
