Claire creates Animations both independently and in collaboration with other More Than Minutes Artists, using 2 different styles of Animation: Stop Frame and Speedy Drawing. It is a useful medium for making information more accessible and engaging. Bringing a story or project to life through simple, colourful metaphors and visuals. It has been a natural extension of the Visual Minutes work, as clients explore different ways of communicating their messages.
Claire has also been doing ‘Live Animation’ at conferences with artists from the More Than Minutes team. They capture sound bites from delegates on a particular theme and then do quick animation shorts for each one. This is all edited together and shown on the big screen at the summary section of the conference.
Clients include Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, First Ark Housing Association, Locality and the Co-operative Group.
