Prospective PhD study

Good news, I have been accepted onto the PhD programme at the University of Loughborough's Animation Academy from October!
Emma's sketch of her synaesthetic visual image prompted by the sound of running water (above).

My proposal was about animating unique brain states (like synaesthesia) through animated documentary, and why this genre might be uniquely suited to do so.

I'm very nervous about it but I also know that it'll be an incredible learning curve for me, and I'm very pleased to be back being a student again - learning is so much more open than teaching (although I will still be doing a bit of that to keep body & soul together!).
