- Kai Munoa Showreel 2019
I am a recent graduate of Ballyfermot College of further education (BA Hons in Visual Media with Animation)
I am passionate about 2D animation, I am a flexible and adaptable problem solver with a keen eye for detail and the integrity of the design of a film. I have a strong grasp of the principles of animation and storytelling. I am Fluent in both English and Spanish and have an excellent knowledge of Anatomy and Physiology.
I am sociable and communicate well with others in a fast paced collaborative environment.
I am a highly self-motivated, sensitive to the needs of others and always happy to work as part of a team. I am able to prioritize and have good time management skills. I am able to prioritize and handle pressure well under tight deadlines. I can assure quality and a professional standard.
I have experience working with Toon Boom Harmony, TV Paint and Photoshop. I was lead storyboarder, character designer and one of the lead animators in our final year project entitled ‘CTRL-Alt- Z’. Throughout the projectI took on constructive feedback from my peers and teachers on a daily basis and worked diligently under pressure.
During my final year, I was thrilled to take part in the Animation 4 Success mentoring programme, where I gained experience as an animation mentor for primary school children in Ballyfermot Dublin. This project tested my ability to manage groups and adhere to deadlines, I enjoyed teaching my group animation principles and had a good rapport with them throughout.
In addition, I was selected to take part in The Big Pitcher at the 2017 Dingle Animation Festival, where I pitched a TV series in front of industry professionals. it was an unforgettable experience to be able to tell a story that I was so keen on bringing to life, to convey my passion and bring fun to the pitch.
I have a BSc in Athletic Therapy and Training from DCU. I was motivated to do this course because I was curious to know how the human body works. I learned about Anatomy, Physiology and biomechanics, which helped me greatly when I decided to change my career to animation. I have a good understanding of the science behind human movement and animation gave me a whole new perspective on this concept. I particularly enjoyed life drawing and translated everything I had previously learned about anatomy and movement to my animation.
