Sydney Padua - Our New Animation Lecturer!

Bucks New University is proud to announce our new lecturer in Animation - industry veteran Sydney Padua, whose animation career not only includes a roster of Hollywood hits but also encompasses countless visual effects blockbusters.

If that's not enough for you, she has even published highly successful graphic novels.  So, some very good news then for animation and VFX students at Bucks.

Lovelace and Babbage - Sydney's new book
To see more about Sydney's work, you can see her website 2DGoggles here.  Her latest book is Lovelace and Babbage, a modern day interpretation of the work of the Victorian computer pioneers, and now a hit graphic novel.  To see her roster of film work, go to her IMDB page here.  You'll see animation classics like The Iron Giant and modern VFX hits like Clash of The Titans.

I was concerned when I left full-time employment with Bucks at the end of July (I'll still be around to help deliver the new online MA in animation) that it might be hard to find a suitable replacement. I needn't have worried. Syndey is a first class animator with a stellar career as a graphic novelist and story teller. She's a great teacher, too.

She'll be starting work at Bucks in mid-October.
