“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”

I am an animation and film student moving from my third year and keen to know more about the industry that I will be operating in.

Over the last three years, I have been learning and developing my own abilities and have begun to move more towards stop–motion animation, a hands-on approach. I have been developing my own short film, as well as designing and creating all of the puppets, props, backdrops and sets. I love the idea that we, as animators, can create these short films which take on a life of their own and convey their own emotion and messages  to the audience viewing them.

With the creative influences that I have surrounded myself with, be it individuals or industry inspiration, I have tested and driven myself to create something that has been a process of trial and error, with the outcome reflecting all that I have learnt and developed in such a short span of time. I hope that with future practice and other influences, my knowledge and style can expand further.
