I have created small animations in the past which involved character design and storyboarding and now want to expand on these skills and add more to my portfolio. I have also recently become interested in theatre because of an opportunity with hay festival to do the staging for a production, which has given me an interest in learning more about set design and the design process in a collaborative environment.
