STUDENT PROFILE

KIRSTY STEBBINGS

What are you going to do after college?
I’m looking to go to university to learn cell animation.

Can you tell us something about your course that you didn’t know before coming here? I didn’t realise how good the facilities here at CCAD would be. I’d never worked on digital animation as I’ve always had to work on it traditionally by hand, so here I got to experiment with that.


What’s your favourite thing about CCAD? love how small CCAD is, it’s not scary or daunting, it’s really comfortable to be here and to work on something I enjoy doing!

What do you enjoy most about your course? Working on my animation has been the best thing so far as that is what I want to do in the future.
