In 2017 I worked at Kate Dawkins Studio as lead animator to create animations for the BBC Passchendaele Centenary event in Ypres, Belgium. The animations were projected onto the 125m x 70m Cloth hall building, in the centre of the market square, as live theatre and musical performances took place. I enjoyed the challenge of creating work to be projection mapped onto such complex geometry, and even got a chance to appear in the animations as a soldier.
I felt very proud to be part of such an important event, which also won several awards including a place in the Creative Review Annual, Design Week Best in Show, and two Bafta’s.
