“Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you’ll be a mile away and have his shoes.”  It’s all about empathy, as Steve Martin helpfully points out in this quote… As we discussed in our previous post about the international animation challenge about Loop de Loop, animation studio Animade organised the first ever UK screening in Cafe 1001.
