Film & Animation to Feature at the UFAD
2014-03-06 : Aisling Newton
Sandra Scott, Colin Williams and Peter Maybury will be among those participating in the seventh annual Ulster Festival of Art & Design (UFAD), which takes place at the University of Ulster, Belfast, from March 10th – 14th.

Visual effects producer Sandra Scott will host a lecture about her career so far in the film industry, illustrating many of the global successes that she has undertaken across the last two decades. With 20 years’ experience in visual effects, motion capture and feature animation, the Atomic Fiction executive producer regularly runs digital projects worth $10–$85M from inception to completion. She began her career as a visual effects producer at the George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic, most notably collaborating on 'E.T.' with Steven Spielberg. Other credits include ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’, ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘War of the Worlds’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’. Her lecture will take place on Tuesday, March 11th at 7pm.

Colin Williams is the Creative Director of the BAFTA award-winning animation company, Sixteen South. The company produces children’s television for national and international broadcasters as well as working in live action, puppetry and animation. Drawing on his experience of puppet and animation successes, Williams will talk about the development of their new mixed-media animated show, 'Driftwood Bay'. The series, which has been pre-sold to countries including the US, UK, Republic, Australia, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Israel, is being distributed globally by the Jim Henson Company, creator of 'The Muppets'. Williams will give a talk on ‘Driftwood Bay’s’ production process on Wednesday, March 12th, at 7pm.

Graphic designer Peter Maybury will be holding a talk on Tuesday, March 11th, at 1:15pm in the Conor Lecture Theatre at the University of Ulster. Maybury was the co-curator of the Irish Pavilion in 2010 and has since been curating the ‘Messages Sonores’ sound art project in Lisbon, Sligo, Venice, and Tokyo. Some recent work includes: 'Becoming' Alice Maher, Irish Museum of Modern Art; 'Gestalt forms of Loch Ness' Gerard Byrne, MK Gallery / Fondazione Galleria Civica Trento; 'New Faith Love Song' Garrett Phelan, Irish Museum of Modern Art.
