Intake 2007

Philip Bacon

I studied illustration and animation at Manchester Metropolitan University. I spent the first two years concentrating on illustration, but I soon realised that I wanted to see my drawings move. Furthermore, I have always enjoyed creating stories and so I decided to move into the less familiar area of animation in my final year.

I graduated with first class Honours after making several short experimental films, and applied to the NFTS to study animation direction.
During my time at the School I have enjoyed collaborating with others
and using a variety of animation techniques. In addition, I feel I have
taken the opportunity to develop as a filmmaker.

In the future I hope to make films which tell all kinds of different stories.
