UH Digital Animation Expose, 2nd June 2009 -
This is our famous animation festival, celebration and exhibition and is in its sixth year.

About the event:
The event is divided into two halves. In the morning there is a great line up of industry speakers from leading Film visual effects, Games and TV industries. See our website ( for this year’s line up.

Last year’s speakers included Graham Ralph CEO of Silver Fox Films, Louise Ridgeway Head of Animations at Rare Games, Anthony CG Supervisor on Headcases at Red Vision, Mike Bambury Lead Artist at Sony Entertainment Europe, Framestore VFX Supervisor on the Golden Compass and Jon Taylor Lead Artist at KUJU.

The afternoon holds our prestigious animation film showcase, containing the very best 3D, Games and 2D animated movies from our graduating class. These films are in stiff competition with each other to win top prizes decided upon by a distinguished panel of industry judges. Last year the audience was over 400 people and close to capacity, the day is free to all but seats in high demand so arrive on time to avoid disappointment, and having to watch on the large screen outside.
