"Distraction" is my graduation film I created at the National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA) Bournemouth University. The film including the story and production was created entirely by myself with the sound design created by Alex Clarke.

The story is based on an insurance claims office worker who comes to work happy and eager to begin his daily boring routine behind his desk. A mischievous troublesome little fly has other ideas and sets out to irritate the man and stop from doing his work.

I have recently graduated from Bournemouth University and I am looking to become an Animator within the Tv or film industry. I am naturally a very meticulous person, and my tasks are always completed to a high standard in an effective and efficient manner. I demonstrated this whilst at Bournemouth University where I learnt a variety of skills which gave me the confidence and motivation to work on my final year project by myself. I decided to work on the major project by myself to push my skills further and be able to create an ambitious piece to display everything I had learnt. Managing my time very efficiently alongside a number of other assignments was a key factor which I believe made the project very successful. I enjoyed working on all areas throughout the production however animating was the part I savoured most as bringing my characters to life and giving them their own personality and character is something I have a great passion for.
