Currently studying Animation Ba(Hons) at University of the West of England.

The "Chase Scene" brief was the last one for the Level 1 of my Animation course.
Brief = Create 20-30 seconds animation scene with two characters, one chasing the other.

The course's briefs on Character Design or Concept Art are really motivating!

To get used with the process of animatics, I've done a quick first experience on it, using a scene from Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" as reference.
I've been studying image composition for film, by analysing some film shots and sketching how it would look like as storyboards.
Having this Foundation year to creatively explore Moving Image and Illustration was very enriching.
Leeds College of Art is a marvellous place to study, and the course helped me expand my knowledge on general project development, art, design, critical thinking and problem solving.
The tutors were supportive, engaged and helpful.
This brief-based method really motivates me, and that reflects in my work.
Here is a bit of the work developed during this one-year course:
For the Final Project I specialized in Moving Image, creating an experimental animation short titled "The Unlucky Man".
Making of "The Unlucky Man", final project of the Foundation course at Leeds College of Art.
Undoubtedly, the final project that I developed at António Arroio (Prova de Aptidão Artística) was my first real experience at time management and planning, design and illustration. Even though I had previously illustrated a few assignments and commissions, it was in the making of this final project that I fully understood how to develop a project from scratch, how to design and solve problems.
I've created a collection of illustrated activity books for children, based in philosophical concepts. Due to time regulations, only two books of the idealized collection were made:
Metaphysics and Aesthetics.
The text, written with the help of a professional philosopher, is characterized by its open philosophical questions, grouped logically. For each question I created an activity, and for each group a certain illustration style.
It was a very successful P.A.A, and I graduated with 20/20 on that subject.
The books are now currently in competition for an exhibition focused on this module, organised by António Arroio.
