Animation! / Illustration.

introduction

I am a student animator, I've found a personal style using ink over acetate and a light box of which I am developing all the time. I'm still exploring other methods, particularly digital animation.

I discovered animation a year ago, and I have found my calling. I consider my second year of university to be my year of discovery, in finding animation and a unique, very personal style that I am proud of. I am excited for my third year of university, I have plans to expand on and develop my ink animation, introducing what I have learnt with digital animation over summer.

What's Happening

Showcase

End of Year Exhibition

Role:

Student Contribution

Location:

Manchester

For our end of year animation exhibition, our work was displayed at Federation House, accompanied by a beautiful live orchestra.
As an addition to the work I had screened at the event, I also did a 'performance' piece, that basically showed how I animate everyday but in a public way, with the intention of having my work projected onto a screen as I progressed. However there were many technical issues on the night, so we had to improvise and make it more of a performance based work, where people could come up to me and watch and ask questions.

 

Employment

Holden and Sons

Location:

Manchester

Holden and Sons are a creative advertising firm in Manchester's Northern Quarter, I joined them for two weeks in July. They saw my Tongue Twister trailer at the media launch for the 24:7 festival and offered me an internship. It was a fantastic two weeks in which I was tutored in After Effects and learnt many skills that will come in handy in my third university year. I also realised just how much about Graphic Design that I don't really know, which is essential in a creative advertising firm, so should I be able to return at some point in the future, I'm planning on developing my knowledge of graphic design elements so I'm better equipped to intern there.

Skill

Premiere Skills

I had to teach myself Premiere when I was editing The Tongue Twister trailer together, it was certainly difficult to learn at first but I now have valuable skills using quite professional software.

Skill

After Effects Skills

I have only recently started learning After Effects but have had an initial steep learning curve, and have gotten to grips with it quite well. It will be instrumental in my third year so I will be building on my skills diligently.

Skill

Photoshop Skills

I have a fair knowledge of using photoshop for photo editing, as well as digital illustration and drawing. Again, this is something I will be working on developing in my third year.

Skill

Dragon Frame Stop-Motion Software

The main software I use for my animations, I have a competent knowledge of the workings of Dragon Frame and will continue to develop this in my third year at university.
