My name’s Ryan Pollard, and even though I’m a student of Animation & Motion Graphics, in my part time, I’m a contributing film and entertainment reviewer for T’Hud magazine, Top 10 Films.co.uk and Starburst Magazine. The reason why I’ve become involved in film criticism and talking about films on the Internet came out from a deep love of film and cinema. Reviewing and talking about films has always been the highlight of my week, and I’m hoping that I can keep doing this forever. During my time as a Animation student, I did projects that incorporated various forms of cinema and media that I like, as a way of adding my personality into my animations. This final year, I incorporated some of my favourite genres into my FMP, and captured the essence of my hometown into my D&AD project.
