Name: Connor McKee
School: The Thomas Hardye School
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: I am Connor McKee, a student in Dorset. I have been animating in both 2D and 3D formats since I was 13, and one day hope to work for a big animation company like Pixar. My inspiration comes from a range of anime titles from Spirited Away to Dragonball Z. The numerous computer animated films such as toy story inspired me to become a 3D animator.
Description: Galechaser is a short, computer animated film I have created about a flying ship. It is set on a gas giant planet, where there is no ground. The ship takes off from the floating city of Thunder Atoll, and goes on a cloud-cutting voyage. It's not the only thing in the sky though; there are a few less reputable ships also making the trip... I created the animation using Autodesk Max and Maya, for modelling and animation respectively. The music is original as well; a piece named "Space Dances" I composed digitally as a soundtrack. I animated the film over a period of about a month, using several separate computers; often simultaneously.
