Saturday 25th Sept. 10am - 11am BST (Online)
Join Limerick School of Art graduate Finn Nichol for a beginners guide to animation
Finn Nichol is a recent graduate of Sculpture and Combined Media from Limerick School of Art and Design, Ireland. His practice is a multi-disciplinary enquiry into storytelling. Embracing formal experimentation in his studio practice has yielded an aesthetic language rooted in collage, illustration, and animation- while concurrent musical explorations bear a sonic syntax of richly textured maximalism. United, sound and visuals form technicolour visions of gothic psychedelia. Finn's degree show animation, The Lonely Sea, reflects a year defined by isolation. Devoid of interaction or connection, characters live out choreographed loops against an increasingly surreal world. The method of production is a labour-intensive mixture of hand drawn, Claymation, and digital animation. Finn will draw on his own experimental animation to conduct a workshop exploring the process of creation and storytelling for animation
