Luckily Franny Armstrong came along and invited Leo to work as an animator on the Age of Stupid, a role which inexorably morphed into the design and early implementation of 10:10. After a long hiatus to help grow two small children, Leo is back at his desk at 10:10 working part-time on the Back Balcombe project.
