Director Statement

I work mostly on my own making hand-drawn animations on a computer using Photoshop, Director and the biggest Wacom I can afford. Stylistically, Im going through a period of retro faux lino cut type of thing.I occasionally work with colleagues and other artists on sound or collaborative projects. Mostly I make films about sheds, radgy old ladies, or about the weirdness of life. I’m also interested in split screen and changing the size of the “stage” in mid film.
I went to art college, coincidentally the very first thing I ever did there was a short animation. (Early influences included Roobarb & Halas & Bachelor’s FooFoo. But I originally studies Ceramics and Printmaking at Corsham, where the college was tiny and the education eclectic so you could really develop in any direction with lots of cross-disciplinary support. I moved into Painting (at MA level) where I was really interested in narrative – images with complicated stories behind them. I made paintings (huge things which sometimes grew into installations and not infrequently into sheds) but being constantly curious and wanting to push things , I studied multimedia and started working on computers, making paintings which could move and be interacted with. Partly as the result of moving to a Media Department I became more interested in the movement than the interactivity. Hence – animation.
