ABOUT

ANIMATION

I chose to study Animation as it seemed like the ideal stepping stone for me to take my illustration background and surreal style of expression into the world of film. With animation anything is possible and the way in which you create the frames can have as much of an effect on the quality of storytelling as the subject. As a great admirer of traditional/experimental animation methods using physical media, I opted to study animation at one of the few institutions left in the UK that specialized in such techniques: Edinburgh College of Art. I continue to participate in one of my favorite ECA projects every year, 10 Films 10 Days, which is now open to the public as well as current students and alumni. The project requires participants across animation and composition to create 1 film/score each per day, for 10 consecutive weekdays. I wholeheartedly recommend it for any artists hoping to bring new life and add creative methods to their reels.
