   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.

        ADAM WEBB







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.

Speaks on Love Kahlil Gibran


Kahlil Gibran

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
