An animator who has worked on blockbuster films such as Harry Potter, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will be speaking at the next Dundee Arts Café event. Lecturer Brendan Body will be at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum on May 3rd to talk about his career. For 15 years, Brendan has been a computer animator working in film and television, but is now teaching the next generation of Scottish animators at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, part of the University of Dundee. “I will use the talk to share some of my experiences of working in the industry, but also about my new role as lecturer and researcher.” said Brendan. “Anyone who’s interested in a career in animation, or just wants to know more about the work involved, is most welcome to come along to the latest Dundee Arts Café.” Dundee Arts Café is a programme of talks showcasing arts research and developments taking place locally. The series is organised by the University of Dundee in partnership with Abertay University, and Leisure & Culture Dundee. These events enable members of the public to relax and discuss the arts, from English to History, Philosophy to Architecture, and Fine Art to Product Design, with some of the leading names carrying out work in these areas in Dundee. The events last one hour, and speakers talk passionately about their work for 30 minutes before the floor is opened up to an informal discussion with the audience. The Animation of Movement takes place at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum at 6pm on Tuesday May 3rd. The event is free and open to all, but limited seating means visitors are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Doors open at 5pm.
