This is me.
My name is Tom Tatchell.
I'm 21 years old.
Just finished a course in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics at the University of Glamorgan.
A little more about me and my background.
I first gained an interest in motion graphics and visual effects in my high school years, where I would just play around in Adobe Photoshop and Flash in my spare time, creating rudimentary stick figure frame by frame animations. This later developed into experimenting with After Effects, following various tutorials to get a deeper understanding of the program. My interest in visual effects stemmed from my desire to find out how things work and come together and spent time looking at behind the scenes footage and shot breakdowns. This lead to me doing a course in Interactive Media at Coleg Glan Hafren, followed by the course I am currently on: Motion Graphics and Visual Effects. On this course, I have found myself doing many different styles, from vector based animation to pieces shot on green-screen to snappily edited live action footage.
