HEKATE Film Works Short Animation Competition round 1 Winner
I am a BA Animation graduate from Middlesex University of year 2014. I identify myself as a 2d Animator and I aspire to be one of the best 2D Animator but I do enjoy other styles of animations. I mostly work on TVPaint and After Effects though I am fluent on Flash, CorelPainter and Photoshop and few other softwares. Few of my inspiring animation artists/directors are Hayao Miyazaki and Aleksandr Petrov.
I mostly enjoy making hand drawn 2D digital animations. My drive in producing animations depend on the nature of the story and its messages. I prefer to make animations that involve deep meanings that resonate with the society/individuals.
HEKATE Film Works Short Animation Competition round 1 Finalist
I graduated from the University of Creative Arts and completed a BA Honours Computer Graphics and Animation Course with a degree grade of 2:2. I became very passionate towards the area of character design and animation which is reflected in the projects completed for the university and personal work I have produced during my spare time and for competitions. One particular project I was proud of was a transcription of the character Jack Frost, which was originally a university project that didn’t receive high praise but I took the original work and pushed it further in my spare time to create something different and unique, I was particularly impressed with the result as were my tutors and friends as it showed that I fully understood how to re-invent a well known character to suit the genre of a RPG game. I have completed work experience with a visual effects firm called Butch Auntie to create small visual pieces that are later projected at live shows and events, I can work as part of a team and that I can be very proactive when working on the company’s projects at home by myself. I am particularly interested in film and video games so I hope to end up in one of these fields. I enjoy being involved in the development process of a project taking the idea from concept to production and not afraid to try new challenges in order to grow and improve my understanding of animation and skill set.
