CC Focus: Connect | Event: Dundee Scotland December 2016 |

Create converge held a workshop with Dave Burgess of DreamWorks.

Dave came to Scotland just as new animated feature Trolls opened. At the time he had been Head of Character Animation at DreamWorks for 15 years working on films like Over the Hedge, Monsters vs Aliens and, most recently Trolls. Prior to that he was responsible, at Disney, for animating the Hyenas in Lion King, was part of the Genie animation team for Aladdin and lead animator for Professor Porter in Tarzana.

To cap it all, early in his traditional animation career Dave was mentored by none other than Chuck Jones! Dave has also been a key Instructor for character animation with Animation Mentor for many years.

The workshop was led by The Animation Centrifuge and also presenting ground-breaking work on visualisation for medicine was Jim Bown, Professor of Systems Biology in the School of Arts, Media and Computer Games at Create Converge partner, Abertay University.

The workshop included a panel session with Dave Burgess, DreamWorks; Fraser MacLean and Will Adams of Animation Centrifuge and Once were Farmers; Mal Abbas of Biome Collective; Jim Bown of Abertay University.
