apw_char_des_2014_aaron Our APW Character Design Contest fourth prize winner is Aaron Rachel Brown from Northern Secondary School in Toronto.  For her very colourful mini-skirt character design Aaron wins two passes to 2014 TAAFI (Toronto Animation Arts Festival International).  Aaron is very clear in her answers about her dream job and favorite movies. 1.  What is your dream job?   My dream job would probably be something like directing animated films and voice-acting in said films, while writing graphic novels on the side (rather optimistic of me, huh?). 2. Do you have a favourite animator?   My favorite animator most definitely has to be Hayao Miyazaki. 3. Do you have a favourite movie or comic?   My favorite films are Howl's Moving Castle (and pretty much anything by Hayao Miyazaki), Tekkonkinkreet, and Pan's Labyrinth.   As for comics, I have a great appreciation for the works of Brian Lee O'Malley (Scott Pilgrim), and the graphic novel "The Nao of Brown." Here are the other 2014 winners. animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_1 animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_7animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_6animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_5animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_4animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_3animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_2  animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_7 animation_portfolio_workshop_char_des_contest_aaron_rachel_brown_2014_8
