2D Animation and Storyboarding, Character Design and Illustration.


Hello, I'm Maude! My work focuses on storytelling through character performance and design.

Over the past year and a half, I co-wrote and co-directed 'Bus, Stop!', a graduate film, for which I was also a character designer and animator.

With a total of fourteen characters in the film (including Cecil, the sheep), this project put a lot of emphasis on the characters' animation and designs, ensuring that each one felt distinctly different, while still also being relatable to one another.

This year, I have been specialising in 2D character animation and storyboarding, which has allowed me to explore various film-making techniques, and also familiarise myself with the storyboarder's role within an animation pipeline, from early concept, to a rough "beat-board", and eventually the finished animation.

'Strange Night' - Animatic

An animatic for a story about two people who can travel through time. It's loosely influenced by 1960s new wave cinema and spy thrillers of the same period.
