puppet@Aardman Animations Ltd 2013
From September to the end of November 2013, I was lucky to attend the new Certificate in Character animation course, run in partnership between the NFTS and Aardman. Taught at Aardman’s studio in Bristol by Head of Animation Loyd Price and Senior Animation Supervisor Matt Rees; the course was fantastic experience, where I really got to practice my craft, improving my skills as an animator.
I would like to thank Loyd Price, Mathew Rees, Katie Daniels, Helen Nabarro and all the talented students I had the pleasure to study with on the course, for such a brilliant experience.
My thanks also to the Welsh Broadcasting Trust and the Welsh Arts Council for their kind support in funding me, without which, this little venture might never have happened.
