Dwayne’s Story was created as part of a group project for the BA Animation programme at Colaiste Dhulaigh. The film is a collaboration between myself, Chloe O’Connor and Michael Shannon as animators with the Peter McVerry Trust. It was created in response to and using a taped interview with one of the Trusts service users, Dwayne, as he spoke about the Housing First initiative and its positive outcomes.
The film was created using a mix of cut paper, puppetry animation, motion graphics and stop motion with each member of the team taking on different tasks.
My roles included; director, storyboard artist, layout/background, motion graphics, compositing and editing.
