Personal Statement

From a very early age, I have been interested in animation and my enthusiasm for the medium of storytelling started from watching the start of internet animation and grew from a look into an animation production team. I was intrigued by the amount of work and effort that was put into running an animation crew, wondering how it was possible to manage so many people and run a team that involved such careful delegation and time management.

 

My college studies as a media student at Manchester College have made me well versed in traditional camera compositions and techniques, which I then went on to use in animation.

 

Studying animation at YSJ has strengthened my abilities as an animator and has given me insight to the production behind it.
