The current exhibition at Dorset County Museum, Pardoes ANIMATE!, has proved to be very popular with summer visitors.  As part of its ongoing animation theme, a professional animator and lecturer at
Bournemouth University’s National Centre for Computer Animation is giving a talk about how Animation can become a viable career.

Sofronis Efstathiou will discuss a variety of student animation projects, explaining the different types of technical and creative skills used in their creation.  He will also emphasise  the importance of art, maths and science in this field and explain how they can directly affect the success of an animated film.  The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.

Before becoming Programme Leader of the MA course in 3D Computer Animation at Bournemouth University, Sofronis worked in the Film and Games industry on projects such as “Happy Feet”, “300” and “Fable 2”, training artists and production staff on projects that would go on to win an Oscar, a BAFTA and a Games BAFTA.

Sofronis Efstathiou talk takes place on Thursday 12th September 2013 at 6.00pm. Entry to this lecture is FREE
