Lighting up

BA and MA Animation students illuminated Surbiton's iconic Art Deco station as part of turning on of the Christmas lights in the London Borough of Kingston-Upon-Thames
Date: 15 December 2014
Surbiton's iconic Art Deco station was more Christmas Deco last week thanks to The Cass BA and MA animators. 
 
The animators projection mapped moving images on to the building, transforming its windows into digital stain glass, and walls into animated origami.

Talking about the project, BA and MA Animation Course Leader Mark Collington said, "This is a very exciting opportunity for us. We are really focused on developing alternative applications for animation, working on architectural projects is just one example that shows how progressive the work of our animators is. We are also very lucky to have an ongoing partnership with a range of imaginative organizations including South West Trains and Creative Youth Kingston."

The project is one of a series of animation live briefs with high profile clients in the capital. Last year The Cass animation studio created a 3D Zoetrope for the Museum of London which brought alive artifacts from their Thomas Becket Pilgrim Badge collection, exhibited as part of Digital London Late 2014 and the Museum of London.

The Cass animation studio is also working in partnership with Aduna in 2014 - the Africa-inspired London health and beauty brand and social business. Animation students will be producing virals and immersive experiences as part of the Aduna campaign to "Make Baobab Famous" in 2015. The campaign is designed to promote the baobab fruit, its health giving qualities, and most importantly to raise awareness of the economic benefit to be gained from the sale of the unique naturally occurring powder of the fruit by the West African communities that own the trees.
