SSGB


Earlier this year UWE made a film for the SSGB Homecoming anniversary. The film was produced by UWE students and was led by Sophie Klevenow and Chris Webster. I was part of the team led by Dan Keeble, working on the third film. This was a Flash animated section and Frances Southgate and I worked together to design the characters. The whole film can be watched here.
