The Tidal Grip Project
For my Final year I wanted to create a project that would keep me inspired, it's so easy
in the world of animation to get lost within your own creation. So I decided from the offset that this project was going to have to be about something that I cared about.
After toying around with many ideas all summer, I had a thought why am I trying
to shape Ideas into something I like, when what I really wanted to be doing is
going to the beach and getting into the water.
In that very idea Tidal Grip was born.
For the remainder of the summer I got to work developing a hand made
surf wax, that contained only natural ingredients. This then transpired
into the desire to eventually set the project up as a business after uni, that
would not only sell a product but promote a passion to protect the ocean.
In terms of my uni major project I thought this would be the perfect subject for
my animation project, not only to develop the idea of
the wax itself, but to in fact allow me to create something
that I can remain inspired by.
