Future Encounter - Jessica Knights

Animator, British - What Mary Knew

Jessica graduated this July from UCA Farnham with her film What Mary Knew. Since then, she has worked on the design and animation for a short film for the Channel 4 SuperMe website, as well as continuing to volunteer for the citizen TV channel Worldbytes. When creating a film, her main focus is to make a subject as interesting and exciting to those watching, as she finds it herself. Using strange and intriguing imagery, she hopes to not only draw the viewer in but also give them a brief glimpse at the inside of her head.

Jessica is currently starting work on a personal project on Stendhal Syndrome, a psychosomatic illness whereby a person has violent reactions such as hallucinations and heart palpitations when viewing a work of art.
