Watch Madalena Cardoso's short film 'Summer Bliss'

My short film, Summer Bliss, tells the tale of a woman enjoying a blissful holiday somewhere in the Mediterranean. Everything seems to be heaven between red martinis and shopping trips. But behind this colourful façade, a dark and twisted secret is hidden deep underground, the premises of the luxurious summer house.

Watch Justine Cabreza's short Animation film 'Reflection'

This abstract mood piece is about a girl’s psychological journey through fear and escape. Nothing is literal and is all for interpretation.

This film allowed me to experiment with different rigs, rendering lights and camera angles to portray a provoking story.

As much as I struggled to complete this film, I am proud that it turned out the best that I could do. I hope you enjoy it!

Watch Elvey Mensah-Afram's short Animation film 'Atmos Village'

My love of 3D modelling has grown over these past few years to the point that it's the area I want to specialise in.

This year I decided to do a 3D environment project to explore a concept of mine. I wanted to create an abandoned village hidden in the clouds that runs on natural energy. Working on my Atmos Village environment project not only helped my skills grow and taught me what I know, but it also taught me how much I don't know and how much I'm ready to learn. I've got a way to go but I'm proud of how Atmos has turned out.

Watch Charlotte McIntosh's Animation 2021 showreel

I loved getting the chance to learn new things and continue growing as an animator throughout my time at university. I mainly specialize in 3D animation especially with character animation and lip-sync animation.

The work I have included in my showreel is one of my favourite pieces throughout my journey within the course. The final film I did this year is based on a story I created over 5 years ago about the sun and the moon. This is a lip-sync animation of that story and with the help of my friend, Natalie, we brought that story to life.

Watch Ana-Francesca Chereches' short documentary about OCD

A short documentary that tells the story of two individuals suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder using abstract imagery, shapes and colours.

OCD is a mental illness with a lot of stigma around it. So, this doc focuses on the personal experience of trying to function when rituals, unwanted thoughts and isolation is part of your everyday life.

Fruiting Bodies: A mushroom goes about its duties before stumbling across the destruction us humans have created for our planet. The mushroom ventures into the wasteland to seek a solution.

Watch Imogene Goodman's short Animation film 'Nothing Special'

In my final film, Nothing Special, we follow a character on an everyday journey as they learn to stop and notice the world around them. In doing so, they can find a small pocket of happiness in the beauty of the mundane.

For the project, I used the Grease Pencil tool in Blender to create the character and their world.

Watch Roma Blay's Animation 2021 showreel

My final major project is a virtual reality experience in collaboration with P&G's 50L home environmental sustainability initiative, which aims to tackle in-home urban water waste.

I was inspired to take on the project when I learnt that we use, on average, a startling 250 litres of water a day!

Beginning in outer space and ending in an interactive home, you will experience water's journey. You move through these immersive environments completing activities to learn more about the initiative and how you can develop sustainable water habits.
