About Paul Sinclair
After obtaining his Matric certificate and completing National Service, Paul arrived into the UK from South Africa late in 1991. His initial desire to attend university was delayed as he needed to work for three years in order to become eligible for funding. Paul finally entered higher education in 1997, and completed a BA (hons) degree in animation in 2000, followed by a Masters in 2003 where his thesis focussed on the potential use of animation in raising child aspiration levels and widening participation.
Paul has since worked in the Higher Education sector for 14 years with extensive teaching experience in the subject of Animation, Product Design and Film. He also worked as a motion graphics animator and as a freelance 3d designer.
