    Abstract

    An alternative to working in an industry pipeline is solo animation production, whereby the animator takes on all, or most, of the roles needed to produce a finished piece of work. This report, in combination with the reflective production of an animated artefact, aims to explore this alternative approach. The primary focus is on the key areas of pipeline development and the design of strong visual style.
    The continuous cycle of design, critical reflection, redesign, seems to lie at the heart of what a designer does. The artefact provided the ultimate goal for this iterative process. Loose, abstract ideas were forced into becoming complete and defined through the production of a real-life animation. At the same time as applying discipline to the development of a visual style, artefact development provided a proven one-person pipeline and resulted in the generation of the tacit knowledge that can come only from doing.
