Bachelor in Animation and Visual Effects at Falmouth University 

3rd year

Directed by Mads Johan Øgaard and Katie Noel Wyman. at Falmouth University 2015-16

 

I AM DYSLEXIC is a multi-award winning 2D/CG hybrid animated short film, directed by Mads Johan Øgaard and Katie Noel Wyman.

 

The film expresses what it feels like to have a learning difference in our current school system. Those with learning differences should be proud of who they are and should never be made to feel alone. The film uses strong metaphors to portray these emotions, as we follow a little boy called Johan who climbs a mountain in a world made of books.

For this project we where supposed to create characters based on a script we got from a ''Client'' called Runepa, here was my designs:

This was a project that I had for my animation studies at Falmouth Uni, this project where meant for us to learn about how to create a Pitch Bible. We were given an artist and a concept to create a story out of.  My cards were; "Big and small" as well as the artist Alexander Lindberg
I decided to create a story based on legends, mythology and conspiracies.​

Story concept: 
There is a world under your feet´s. A world as old as the earth itself, with creatures, evolved very differently than those on the surface; do you think that humans are the only intelligent life form on earth? What if I told you that all the fairy tales are real and they live beneath us. Welcome to the World beneath!   

There is a war going on, there are many different razes fighting each other over how they think the future of earth should go, even entities from the same raze aren't one the same side. There is a big organization that does DNA manipulation to make hybrids, to make them self stronger and to make biological weapons to make the other side weak.

This was my first entry for the 11sec club, which was also a school project. It was my first animation in TVpaint. As you can see this animation isn´t 100% complete, but it was the acting that was important.

Drammen VGS 


My focus was in the art studies, where I got experience in several different art forms including, painting, drawing, photography, clay sculpting, architecture, fabric, graphic design, Photoshop, Indesign and so on.


1st year I went to Holland as a Norwegian representative for international collaboration between schools. And in Holand, the focus was on arts.

In the 2nd year, I did extra credit and created a reflex design for a competition, even tho I didn't win the competition I 
received great feedback and was offered a job in graphic design.


In the 3rd year, I won a prize for the "best abstract picture", it's currently on display at the school.
