Abstract

After becoming a freelance animator in 2001 I’ve worked on over 150 client projects covering many areas of the animation industry.

As a Senior Lecturer in Animation, I now find myself surrounded by the projects of amazing students, each developing their own ideas from scratch.

It’s an inspiring experience, but I often find myself, late in the animation studio wondering “What’s next?”

I joined the Walking Group with no idea of what I wanted to utilize it for.

No specific research area excited me enough and frustration set in. At the heart of my frustration, I wanted to get away from technology, techniques, software, current industry work and other peoples Ideas.

I wanted ideas of my own to work on, for the sake of the idea.

Setting out on each walk with nothing more than a notepad and pencil and an app on my phone I track my walking route and mark specific points with images, video and sound clips when I become conscious of a notion or influence.

I now have two planned pieces of work that I want to complete based on ideas of my own, directly influenced by nothing but the experience of walking and the environment around me.
