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.
