biography

Hi, I’m Sinéad. I am a recent graduate of Limerick School of Art and Design, where I studied Animation & Motion Design for 4 years and recieved a First-Class Honours. My final year project also recieved LSAD’s Graduate Award for Best Motion Design, sponsored by Piranha Bar. Throughout my years at LSAD I quickly became a skilled and talented designer, specialising in 3D Animation and Motion Graphics. I also hold a Diploma in Multimedia Animation and a Diploma in Animation & Digital Media from the Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board. This experience, combined with my part-time freelance animation and motion graphics work, gives me over eight years of experience using After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. I also have high proficiency with tools like 3DS Max and Cinema 4D in conjunction with X-Particles, Redshift and Arnold. I am an excellent written and verbal communicator and a strong self-directed learner. I have developed a good working process over my last five years of study. I am meticulous in my attention to detail and am driven by a desire to produce excellent animations; I have a passion for animation and motion design and want to make it my life’s work.

What is that which is external to us, is it as we perceive it? Our perception is a simulacrum, a model of the world that exists only in our mind and is informed entirely by our senses. All the time, constantly filtering the information.
Sometimes, only for the briefest moment, we become aware of this raw sensory input, in moments of hyper focus, idle thought, or in the timeless space between daydreams and reality. These brief and intriguing moments all too quickly awaken our conscious mind, and in trying to reason with the experience, the doors of perception slam shut.
Origin is an exploration of this concept. It stitches together an evocative tapestry of moments, where we are briefly aware of this truth, interlaced with symbols representing human consciousness. Throughout the film, glitch aesthetics is leveraged as a metaphor for the distortion of our perception during these moments. The rapid crescendo of scenes culminates in a brief and beautiful insight to our mind. Watch on Vimeo here: https://vimeo.com/542887884
