Andy Joule is a film-maker and animator.
His films utilise a combination of techniques, comprising the traditional and the contemporary to create works that are moving still lifes. Timelapse, muli-layered image sequences, texture and a sense of disorientation are of prime interest, and the work always has a strong link to sound, with the films set to scores by both experimental and more contemporary composers.
Inspiration comes from a number of places, but paramount are the works of the abstract expressionists Willem De Kooning and Jasper Johns, painters Kurt Schwitters and Ben Nicholson, designer Vaughn Oliver and film-makers Godfrey Reggio, Ron Fricke, Len Lye and Stan Brakhage.
In addition to his practical work Andy has also lectured at Volda University College, Norway and is a Senior Lecturer in Animation at the University for the Creative Arts. He is also a BAFTA juror and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
