Cambridge Creative Encounters 2020/ 21
Commissioned to collaborate with a Cambridge University graduate researcher to create a 3 minute film to showcase their research. I worked with Alicja Dubrowska PhD and her company Waterscope to plan and structure a short animation, highlighting new technology developed by them for water testing in developing countries. I then made the animation including all design, compositing and sound. The film is to be screened March 2021 alongside other collaborations, all supported by Cambridge Creative Encounters, part of the Cambridge Festival. On the back of this I have been invited to run online animation workshops with other Cambridge researchers, as part of the 2021 Cambridge University public engagement programme.
