Animex Pro took place in the run-up to Animex 2005 and took a group of experienced animators with the aim of helping them to develop their skills in the use of digital technology.
The tutor for the 15 week course was John Hedley. John is a graduate of the University of Teesside and since graduating has worked in computer games development and freelance film production and has most recently been involved in lecturing right here at Teesside.
The 8 students that completed the course have been working on 8 new and unique films that will be premiered as part of Animex Screen. The films utilise different ideas, themes and styles and demonstrate a varied use of the available technology from 2D to 3D software applications.
Check the Animex Screen programme to see when and where you can see the films made by Juan Avellaneda Sanchez, Paul Bloomfield, Christopher Corner, Tom Johnson, Christopher Learwood, Graham Purvis, Christopher Smith and Adam Steele. The films are so new, they don't have titles yet, so be there or miss out!
