Kingston University: RARE Illustration and Animation Ba Hons Graduate Show 2012 Review part three

At this year's show Kingston graduates showcased animation of exceptionally high standard - look out for names such as Phoebe Halstead, Angie Phillips, Zuzanna Weiss and Rosanna Wan.

I didn’t manage to watch all of the Kingston University graduate animations at their RARE showcase and sadly none of them are available to view in full online, but here’s the best of what I saw, alongside some short trailer examples of their work.

My favourite animation had to be Peace One Day, an outstanding piece of work by Phoebe Halstead and Angie Phillips. In this energetic and hugely engaging battle of wills the continents collide and men do battle down the ages. All put together with a brilliant soundtrack. No wonder if was Best of Year winner with D&AD.

Angie Phillips was also responsible for a stunning animation designed to promote a book about cyber crime. I love the energy of her characters.

I loved this poster to accompany a hand drawn animation called A Tall Tale by Stephen Middleton, depicting a circus freak who tries to regain his title.


Gemma Green-Hope created mesmerising Negative Patterns which she displayed to great effect on a wallpapered wall.

Zuzanna Weiss put together a frighteningly brilliant story of primal instincts which had me glued to the big screen.

And finally Rosanna Wan‘s Skip Town was a dream like sequence about the desire to leave small time America, set to the American folk classic Goodbye Old Paint.

I’m not sure about the reasoning that has kept the completed works offline because it seems a shame not to share them more widely. Nonetheless I suggest that all animation lovers keep an eye on these graduates as their work was really quite mesmerising. Don’t forget to also catch up with my Kingston graduate illustration reviews too here and here.
