Mat Dame

Mat studied Animation at undergraduate level at the University of Lincoln and then was part of a team in the BFX Competition during summer 2013. He then secured a BFX/Framestore Scholarship to undertake the MA Animation Production course at Arts University Bournemouth.

During his MA studies at AUB, Mat worked on a placement at King Rollo Films in Honiton, Devon, where he was inducted into using 2D cut-out software CelAction. His MA work explored CelAction from practical, theoretical and professional perspectives; this involved him working day-to-day with the software, as well as gathering extensive interview material from a range of people, including producer Claire Jennings, animators Tim Searle and Kitty Taylor, and owner/founder of CelAction, Andy Blazdell.
