I'm Ryan McGrath an artist from Cardiff. I see motion design as the perfect platform for artistic creativity. I applied for a place on the course after completing an Art & Design BTEC at college and had very little knowledge of the software or processes involved. 3 years on, with the help of our great tutors and a lot of hard work, I now understand the visual effects pipeline and am confident in using the computer as a tool to help realise my imagination. I love every step of the visual effects process, from concept to completion and I am yet to settle on a specialism.
