Skills and Attributes

As an animator I like to focus on bringing my characters to life through believable


movement, expression and also consciously making decisions about the aesthetics of
my animation. I see myself as a generalist and would fit in easily to any team. I have the
skills and drive to be as good as anyone and am constantly trying to improve to be the
best I can be. I have no doubt that animation and moving image is all I want to pursue as
a career.

I have been using software packages such as 3D max and After Effects for over 2 years
and am confident in most areas e.g. modeling, rigging, character expression, particles
and dynamics, forces and most plug-ins. I can also apply my skills to other areas of
production such as storyboarding and character development.
