‘Middle Watch’ (2022)
To gain hands-on experience working in an animated production and prepare for the professional world, I completed an internship as 2D Assistant Animator/Clean-Up Artist for Middle Watch during my 2nd Year at university.
The project was a collaboration between industry experts, such as John Stevenson, who is best known for directing the DreamWorks feature Kung Fu Panda, and recent graduates from Falmouth University and Arts University Bournemouth. To tell the story of a sailor who must come to terms with the trauma of war and the mysteries of the deep, as he endures another shift on the Middle Watch.
In 2023, the film was a BAFTA nominee for Best Animated Short and was selected as the Best Animated Short in the 2023 Nevermore Film Festival Audience Awards.
