My name is John Monge, and I studied BA Animation. I love watching several animated films and I am a big fan of Studio Ghibli. Throughout my final year, I enjoyed animating characters and make them come to life either in 3D or 2D. For my project, I have decided to focus on mastering the animation principles and complete small exercises which explores dynamic and subtle performance, two-character interaction, monologue, and a character run cycle. The goal of the project was to develop an understanding of performance. I have collaborated with different film students, and I have helped them animate their characters which were very fun! During my second year, I was able to collaborate with other students and worked as a team for the client brief project. I am hoping to apply for internships or junior entry-level opportunities to kickstart my career as a character animator.
