Animation comes off the page into full-size film sets – where life-size painted characters explode twenty feet up a wall and burst out of the conventional 'frame', and where characters are created not with small movements of a pencil but by sweeping, physically-demanding movements of the animators' whole body as they create something that is much larger than themselves.
Daisy Jacobs is a London-based, British animation director. She uses a hybrid of stop-motion and painted animation to create her characters - which are life-size. Educated in the UK and Germany, Daisy spent five years at Central St Martin's School of Art in London, followed by an MA in Directing Animation at the National Film and Television School.
