Bridging the Gap from University to Professional Animator
As you probably know last week was very busy here in Bradford. Why? Because Bradford hosted a big event called BAF (Bradford Animation Festival) which is the UK’s longest-running animation festival that takes place every November at the National Media Museum. In the 6th day of the festival, my University lecturer, Jason Theaker held a talk about a recent animation project. Long story short, below you can find the details of the talk from the BAF site :
Jason Theaker (freelance animator and tutor at Bradford University) along with James Thompson (a Bradford University student), explain how tackling a real commercial commission from an optometry client helped refine the industry skills and talent of the students working on the brief.
I also have to mention that they won the “Best Educational Video” award for the most informative, educational, promotional and entertaining video made by, or for, the optical community.
