This week for H&G, Jin and I teamed up* to introduce our guest speaker Peter Lowey. He is an AIM alumini, and animator + director of Piepants Animation studios. He was greatly influenced by Disney's work very early in his life and has since then journeyed through the world of art and animation, first with the foundational tutoring of artist Noela Patone, and later on with the teaching and exploration opportunities at RMIT. He did his Advanced Diploma of Multimedia before going further into his Masters in AIM. He is an artist dedicated to his craft who has an obvious love for movement and unusual perspectives. He is not afraid to explore and experiment.
Work that I find particularly interesting:
Dreaming (Student Work)
The Blue Bird on My Shoulder (Student Work)
Polo's Robot (Recently Completed)
You can find more of his work here on:
It was good to have him share his work and his experiences doing his Minor and Major projects. Time is such a huge factor in the production process... And it was something we were warned to watch out for.
*when I say teamed-up, I really mean she did all the research and I went and bought/prepared lunch with a few helpers XD
