Animation is flexible. By flexible I mean that it can involve pretty much any kind of art and that is what I like about it the most. An animator can do photography, film, design, illustration, architecture design and even fashion or music when needed to, there are absolutely no limitations. The range can only grow or narrow down depending on the animator and his interests. But nonetheless the freedom is scary and de-motivating at times, and discipline is the most important trait required to handle it.

The course opened many new doors to me and helped to increase my professional contact list. I would say this is the most valuable thing I will leave the university with as it already helped me to secure my future job.

My name is Ashwani Kumar, and I enjoy meeting new people and finding ways to help them have an uplifting experience. I have had a variety of opportunities working in studios as Roto Artist and Jr. Animator, through which I was able to learn things about the animation work flow and industry. I am dedicated, outgoing, and a good team member. Being an Animator I also have a dream to be a part of Disney Studios. Even though I am not a big fan of doing 2d animation I still love working in Photoshop. Photography is also my one of my main interests after animation.

I have been studying animation for five years, with an additional two years at Bedford College prior to starting this course, personally specialising in 2D digital animation.

Though I like to study the underlying principles that brought traditional animation to life when the practice was still young, I also strive to take advantage of what modern animation has to offer by combining the traditional work-flow with digital media.

Now I’ve finished my course, I wish to go into character design, storyboarding and graphic novel illustration. I plan to collaborate with other artists I know from different specialisms in order to find work and discover new projects I’m passionate about.

In the three years of my animation course I have developed a wide range of creative skills in art and design. I now have a strong awareness of the history of art and design as well as Animation. I became more innovative and I developed problem-solving skills. I learned how to painfully let go of ideas and plans that may not benefit my animation projects and to seek better alternatives. The most fun part of the course was working along side my classmates in projects despite that they were disagreements and indifferences, I now believe that the outcome of animation films had better quality then if it was done by one person.

My practice is a short animation, which plays with the humour of a robot falling in love with a power source. I have chosen to call it My Charger and I have used Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, After Effects and Premier Pro to create.

As an animator my main interest is story telling. I’m inspired by the great works of Disney and Studio Ghibli, and have worked tirelessly at improving my narrative skill. I’m drawn to the hero archetype that holds the protagonist role in contemporary film and have applied this in the execution of my final film. My aim was to create a character that resembled that of a superhero. Further research attributed to the final decision, when it came to creating my story. In the end I was left with a personal message highlighting the loss of innocence that comes with age.

This course has provided me with the basic knowledge and skills required to begin a career in a variety of roles within the animation industry.

I enjoy thinking of new ways in which my animations can tell a story, and hopefully this sense of creativity is reflected in my final major project. The amount of work that’s needed to produce a successful animation is certainly a lot more than I imagined at the start of this course, however this is all worth it when I finally get to see my work come to life in front of me.

I specialise in 2D animation and love to make things come to life! Having the ability to create what you like and simply turn it into magic is what encouraged me to make this subject a part of my life. What excites me most is the sheer possibilities awaiting this generation of animators and I’m glad to be one of them. I want people to be as excited seeing my animations as I was creating them, if that flickers the slightest bit of joy in someone then that means I’m on the right track.

All of us as a group have pooled in all our knowledge and resources learned over years of study to create this final animation. We thoroughly enjoy watching our ideas burst into a new form of life through CGI which is why we grouped up to see how far we can push ourselves. Starting the whole process from scratch, we have created a trailer of sorts to feature a bigger, longer and more challenging project in the future. Over the years we have grown to watch and learn how CGI is making an impact on future entertainment and each of us aims to harness this ability and push its limits.

My practice and expertise as an animator includes knowledge of 2D and Stop-Motion animation. I would also consider myself to be a storyboard artist because I am a visual thinker so it comes naturally to me to imagine scenes, being a visual thinker also helps me with character designing because I can straight away envision what I want them to look like. My favourite part of my practice is creating story lines and concepts for animations and also designing characters. I also enjoy filming stop motion animation because it’s interesting to direct my object or model and working with materials.

On this course for last three years studying animation I have enjoyed and observed and studied many different styles. I have developed my final major project from using personal experiences and I attempted to create a film that reached out to people, with the aim to help people understand and raise awareness social anxiety and depression, while developing my own style and pushing abilities. I feel that colour is important, as everyone has their own, so this film looked at how I see emotion represented in the world.
