Katy Tonge
I’m Katy Tonge and I’m passionate about 2D animation, gouache painting and theatre. I love experimenting with perspective and textures in my work and enjoy exploring a range of techniques for comedy within my projects. My films often incorporate sets of interviews using visual exaggeration for comedy, as I’m really interested in the juxtaposition of animation and real-life dialogue. My graduate film ‘Post Pandemic Party’ explores how young people adapted their social lives during the lockdown through animation. With a keen interest in theatre, I’ve been heavily involved in the University's Drama Society working both as a Promotional Secretary and as President in my final year, earning myself a Student Leadership Certificate, and utilised my video editing skills for online performances during the COVID-19 pandemic. I also gained an Art and Design Foundation Diploma from Oxford Brookes University, achieving a Distinction for my final film 'Have I Got Booze for You?'.
