Flick-Flip-Flick is an innovative project, developed by the Department of Art and Design and the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE, in partnership with local schools and colleges and Aardman.
To launch the project professional animators from Aardman have worked with the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE to produce new flick books. These flick books demonstrate a range of innovative techniques including: hand drawn, painted, 3D modelling, stop motion, photography and CGI, the animators have worked with researchers from the Centre for Fine Print Research at UWE to explore new technologies such as laser cutting and UV digital presses. Each new work will be printed as both an A3 print and made into a book and will be exhibited at the Bower Ashton Campus 4 - 15 October 2010.
I am very flattered to have been one of the Aardman animators to contribute to this project. If you'd like to see the flip books have a look at their website and if you happen to be in Bristol why not come to the exhibition opening too? On October the 5th at 17:00 at the Bower Ashton Campus.
