Students connect with creatives to explore the process for developing and designing creatures in The Deep.
Join ACTF, ACMI Education, Australian Maritime Museum and Producer, Avrill Stark and Creator and Art Director, James Brouwer to learn all about character and creature design in the award-winning animated television series The Deep. Combining ocean science knowledge with imagination and creativity, this session unpacks the pre-production process of designing and developing the entertaining characters and fantastical creatures from The Deep.
The Deep is an action/adventure/comedy television series that follows the adventures of the Nekton family – a brilliant team of underwater explorers who travel to the mysterious depths of the ocean. Most of our oceans lie unexplored and unexplained and the Nekon family come across some interesting and sometimes dangerous creatures that swim in the depths.
During the virtual session students hear from Avrill and James to explore the process for developing and designing creatures in The Deep.
