Damon Bannister Foundation Year Lead; Lecturer, Animation

Damon Bannister

I am a Foundation Year Lead and Lecturer in Animation at the School of Digital Arts (SODA). My background is in 3D modelling, animation and visual effects, with a focus on filmmaking and cinematography.

I provide support across the whole programme, with an emphasis on storytelling and the realisation of ideas.

My practice ranges from animation production in 3D software, digital editing and compositing techniques, to live-action cinematography and stop-motion pipelines. 

Academically, I have an interest in combining the various mediums of animation, and using the emergent technology available at SODA to bring traditional animation techniques into the modern age.
