Al Boardman was originally from Liverpool and now resides in WInchester with his wife and two children where he works as a freelance Motion Designer. According to Al ‘I didn’t do well at school and didn’t especially enjoy my time there either’ but he did manage to become a completely self taught and highly accomplished motion designer He originally started making gifs as a way of sharing work in progress for projects but this grew into a passion for the form in which he experimented with new techniques and forms of expression that he said was ‘ heavily influenced by the GIF-art movement that appeared to center around Tumblr. Al Boardman creates beautiful chaotic-seeming and yet controlled animations in which lots of bits, separately moving, somehow are part of a whole that gels together for a moment - and then flies apart again.
