Fete De L'anim'
I was lucky enough to be part of the animation festival in Lille from the 14'th to the 17'th March.
Whilst in Lille I took part in the Animation 'Marathon'. The three graduates of NFTS Animation Direction Me, Lilian and Min, were given 48 hours to create a 10 second animation, inspired by one image. We were working along-side 19 other teams of three, from film schools across Europe.
You can watch our animation here;
On the last day, our films were screened as part of the festival!
I will be posting news here about how my Grad film Talent Show is doing on the festival circuit!
I have graduated!
Having graduated from the NFTS Animation Direction MA course March 2013, I am ready to work as a freelance Director/Animator!
I have really enjoyed my time at NFTS and have learned a great deal and had the privilege to work with so many talented professionals and meet amazing friends!
