Reyes and Clara are recent graduates from the Arts University Bournemouth, both with a great passion for bringing stories to life through the medium of 2D animation. In pre-production, be it for visual development, character design, or storyboarding, Reyes strives to be an imaginative storyteller through drawing in all forms. Similarly, Clara wishes to breathe life into characters and ideas through drawing, during pre-production, but her interests also stretch to other roles, such as background painting and animation.
