Master Animator comes to Cumbria

Master Animator comes to Cumbria

The man who helped Dory find her way home and was involved in the production of a host of other award-winning animated family favourites is making an exclusive visit to Cumbria.

Michal Makarewicz is Directing Animator at the world-famous Pixar Animation Studios.

Among his awards is an animation industry Annie for his work on Ratatouille.

He’s offering to share some of the tricks of the trade at a 3D character animation Masterclass at the University of Cumbria, Fusehill Street, Carlisle on the weekend of the 28-29th January 2017.

In another event he’ll be lecturing about his fascinating life to date on Monday January 30th when he’ll be speaking about creativity, animation as well as providing a live demonstration.

“It’s an amazing opportunity to be able to bring someone of Michal’s ability to Carlisle,” Julie Mennell, the University of Cumbria’s vice chancellor, said. ”The workshop will be hugely popular as he’s worked on some of the best known animation movies of all time.”

Cloudscape Studios, Creative Skillset and the University of Cumbria are presenting the weekend. You can find more information by downloading our brochure.
