As this is my first ever post I will tell you a bit about myself.
I’m a director and animator.
I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela and after living in Curacao, Florida, Holland and Spain, I finally settled in England. I completed a Foundation course in art and design at Kent Institute of Art and Design, and went on to do a BA in Illustration and Animation in Kingston University. I specialized in animation, but still pursued illustration in my spare time. After graduating I went straight on to the NFTS to do a Masters in Animation Direction.
During my time at the school I have directed and animated several short films whilst working in a range of techniques, although my preferred medium is traditional hand-drawn animation. When I graduate I would love to make animated commercials and music videos, as well as animated shorts.
I’m happy to say that I am finally graduating tomorrow! Once I am officialy made a ‘master’, I promise to upload my newest showreel and trailer for my graduation film ‘El Macho’. But for now, you get a sneaky preview still of the film…
