A Brief History of...

When I was 14 years old I started an animation club, with the help of some local artists. Four years later, my decision to leave for University caused the organisation to dissolve.
However, during its presence, 'Loco Motion' involved more than 50 teenagers, had worked with over 20 Professionals from different disciplines, and had been awarded more than £40,000 through various funding initiatives.
Loco Motion films have been screened in many cinemas - including the Science Museum IMAX and Southbank BFI. One of our biggest achievements was having a film broadcast on BBC2!
I used Loco Motion as a platform from which to create relationships with local schools and other organisations. It is from these contacts that I have gained my experience of leading workshops for younger children.

Through my huge commitment to this group - in both organisation and creativity - I have gained invaluable experience at working within large projects, within the boundaries of external funders, coordinating large groups of people and standing as a key position within a constituted organisation.
