Manipulate / ECA Animation Showcase: Type by Cameron Duguid
The Skinny Magazine presents Type (2001) by Cameron Duguid, one in a series of selected work from Edinburgh College of Art's past graduates in the discipline of animation. A selection of some of the best of ECA's graduate animation work from the past 20 years will be screened at the 2014 manipulate festival.
Since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2001, Duguid has directed a series of films, mostly dealing with scientific themes. These include The Atomists about the roots of atomic theory in ancient philosophy, and Annotate, about the way we relate to electricity.
Duguid has also produced animations for feature length documentaries, including Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives, an award winning BBC4 documentary about quantum theory, and Oliver Sacks: Tales of Music and the Brain, from the Imagine series. Duguid describes his short film Type as "a kaleidoscopic journey through type and types, pointing this way and that, and forever unfolding through a variety of lenses and perspectives."
