BA [Hons] Animation

Leah creates animated pieces using multi-media techniques. She is primarily interested in visualising complex themes through animation, and hopes to produce evocative short films in the future.

Bonfire Hound

This project was an opportunity to deconstruct a well-known folk tale and explore the more profound psychological responses tied to such themes as death and trauma. The piece leans toward a more experimental approach to storytelling, aiming to evoke emotional responses from the viewer through striking visuals. Leah used mixed media, such as chemicals on cloth, to illustrate the narrative's more abstract aspects.
