Hi, I'm Daniel. I'm a MA/Animation Student studying to become an animator for video games, games designer, and anything in between. My passion for video games started at a young age with the PS1 with Spyro and Croc. This also made me get into animation as I always want to make things move on screen and make people go wow that's pretty cool. I would like to kick start my career within the games industry, being a part of something amazing, creating great content for everyone and anyone!
GET TO KNOW DANIEL
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?
My dream job would be a Game Play Animator as I have always wanted to see my animations in a playable game.
WHAT'S YOUR HOBBY?
My hobbies have changed a lot during the years, but right now I like to play games (obviously) and working with other artists to make unique cool looking videos.
IF YOU WERE AN ANIMAL, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU BE? AND WHY?
My favourite animal has always been a meerkat, so definitely that, they're super cute and always super alert. I just think they're pretty neat.
TELL US AN ACHIEVEMENT YOU'RE PROUD OF.
The biggest achievement I'm proud of is working on the short: Jericho, I was super proud of the team and myself for producing a high quality short.
DESCRIBE A CHALLENGE THAT YOU HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR GROUP PROJECTS.
I have always had to overcome the challenge of having a cool idea and not being able to do it because of my skill set. I would then go out, learn how to do it, and come back with something cool. Improving my own skills and lifting the project higher as a whole.
DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE VFX/ANIMATED SEQUENCE.
The current show I'm watching, "The Midnight Gospel", has a very cool shot in episode 2 where a side character has a small fight sequence with weird creatures. The animation is very stylized which reminds me of Adventure Time.
WHAT VIDEO GAME CHARACTER BEST EMBODIES YOU?
Probably the main character from Dark Soul. I feel like I'm constantly dodging and weaving but getting there in the end. It's quite deep but it always works out in the end.
WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN
THE YEAR BOOK?
I've been here for 4 years, maybe a 2 page spread of a collage of my face, maybe 4 pages of my face?
