‘Setting the Scene’ with Fraser McLean

Fraser McLean Guest Teacher at Bristol School of Animation delivered two talks- ‘New Story Worlds & Process Mashups’ and ‘Setting the Scene: Beyond the Storyboard’…

Fraser McLean has worked for both Disney and Warner Bros. Feature Animation as a special effects animator, artistic coordinator and production software supervisor, his many film credits include “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (1988), “Space Jam” (1997) and “Tarzan” (1999). In 2011 his book “Setting the Scene: The Art and Evolution of Animated Layout” (Chronicle Books) was released to great acclaim. Fraser has spent a couple of days mentoring our students and exploring their projects, as well as delivering some fantastic lectures…

“The thing I enjoy about coming to visit the Animation course at UWE is that it’s fantastically diverse – there’s people from all over the world. I’ve been talking to students from Wales, Cuba, Spain… and that as an environment in which to learn the process and craft of visual storytelling, moving image and communication is ideal – because it is a microcosm of the global community. It’s an environment that’s not specific to one culture, one locality or one tradition. You’ve got people from everywhere and with input from everywhere you get a richness and diversity that you don’t always get in other contexts, that’s one of the lovely things about being here.” – Fraser McLean, November 2016
