Welcome to the homepage of Animator Clive Shaw. I live in Southwark and seem to make a habit of featuring bears in my films. I like them.
I have just graduated from BA Animation at Middlesex University. Before college I worked in Graphic Design at many leading London Studios and Agencies.
I combine mixed-media stop motion with After Effects and Photoshop. I will upload sketches, photos and preparatory works to show my working methods and forthcoming projects in the Works in Progress section. I love 2D animation and strive to make both visually seductive and emotionally engaging short films. If you enjoy them or have any suggestions, please add a comment.
Please look at my latest (post-college) animation for Festival Delle Lettre 2012 (Italian Literature Festival). Book tickets to see my graduation film (along with Festival Delle Lettre fellow film-maker Prano-Bailey Bond) at LSFF 2013, see here for details!
My previous film won Shooting People Film of the Month, September 2011. I was selected by Matt Groening! I have no idea how I’ll top that, but I know my films are already better!
“Clive Shaw’s almost dialogue-free “Girls and Boys” plays like a funny and slightly disturbing dream. I love it when animation does this, cramming quick jokes and reveals in a short amount of time. The memorable music by Jude Cowan and Matt Armstrong support the weird goings-on, and make the cartoon great for multiple viewings. Well done!” – Matt Groening
