Jedd Macrae BA (Hons) Animation
A young passion for Art and making comic books branched out to 2D Animation around the age of 16, during my A Levels. I enjoyed expanding my horizons from fine art to creating digital art and seeing it come to life with movement. I became particularly fond of animating characters, and began my Bachelor’s degree in Animation with the incentive to develop this craft. Along the way, I enjoyed creating work in a variety of mediums and took on roles such as Creative Director, Storyboard & Animatic Artist, Film Editor and most significantly, I developed a passion for Sound Design. I knew by the final year of my degree that I wanted to continue studying with a Masters in Sound Design - and recently winning an RTS award for my sound work on our 2nd year film was not only an encouragement, but a boost of my confidence.
When not studying, I like to stay busy by completing odd jobs through my freelance business, ‘HOGG Animation & Illustration’. This is something I would really like to develop after gaining years of experience working in the industry, perhaps seeking funding for a series pitch or short film – there are many ideas that I would love to bring into the world of film & animation.
I would be really interested in working a short internship or gaining any sort of industry experience over the summer months before starting my MA, but I currently continue to work on completing our student film, ‘Albert’ (get a sneak peek at some of my animation and sound work on this below), so if I can't find any work experience, this will keep me busy!
