Animation Showcase

Animation Screenings from Multimedia, Animation and Game Design learners;

Leon O’Connor; The characters Leon has created are all capable, powerful people with serious handicaps that they need to overcome or live with. For example, the Angel, Kalisto Maldra is crippled by her shattered soul. She can’t defeat her nemesis unless she remakes her own soul. Then she can ascend to her multi-winged form.  Art is Leons way of expressing his own personal experience with overcoming difficulties.

Vlasov Hlib’s main interest is in horror games and fashion. In the future he plans to become a concept artist and use fashion as inspiration for character design combining horror and fashion.

Tom Laffey; A fantasy story set in a world where monsters are themed around keys and locks. The main character, a Key-Knight, goes into a dungeon to hunt a large Snake. The character’s name is Claudia. Her appearance is based on the mixture of a knight and a playboy bunny girl making her contrast against the fox-like serpent that she fights.
