Since a young age Ed has been obsessed with cinema, and storytelling. With a natural talent for drawing went onto develop his own characters and worlds. Graduating Arts University Bournemouth 2015, Ed came onto animation whilst taking an art foundation course at the same university, after witnessing the magic of bringing his drawings to life. Now plans to continue education by applying to the National Film Television School.
After reading “hero with a thousand faces” and “primitive mythology” by Joseph Campbell, I felt the need to create my own mythology. Campbell’s ideas suggest that mythology is not just fairy stories and superstition, but an expression of our individual and collective unconscious manifest in recognisable images and symbology of one’s social upbringing. I wanted to use his structure of the monomyth along with this idea symbology to create a new creation story for technological age.
