11 November 2019

BA (Hons) Animation Senior Lecturer, Ben Simpson (a.k.a Doctor Simpo), has launched a new book encouraging budding young animators to bring their ideas to life.

Doctor Simpo’s ‘Bring stuff to life?’ contains the twelve principles of animation plus his own top tips, providing clear and simple explanations to creating believable animations.

The book launched at Thought Bubble Comic Con 2019 where Doctor Simpo was on-hand to demonstrate some of his twelve principles, offering some insights to those keen to give it a go. With materials supplied by CASS ART visitors to the stand created the animations shown below. 

Ben Simpson is an animator specialising in traditional 2D sequencing techniques in a comic book format, creating his own animations from his studio at Bates Mill in Huddersfield.
