During third year I set out to be extremely ambitious, expanding my knowledge of film theory and creating a short concept, character design, background design and storyboards for my practical to show the skills that I had learnt from this, and made my own pilot episode from scratch. I made everything from the concept to storyboards to character designs to animating and editing, and I collaborated with a student from Leeds College of Music for my music score and worked with the voice actor from second year collaborative animation, A History of Cake. By animating on this project, I found my love for animation again, and I want to continue animating alongside storyboarding and character/background design.
By researching into industry through this module with support from tutors, I feel confident about applying for jobs and working in the industry, building up my social presence and applying for MA courses. Thanks to this course I have learnt invaluable skills and techniques towards my practice that I can confidently take into the animation industry.
