BIOGRAPHY

Fay Heady-Carroll is an animator, artist and director born in Dublin, Ireland to an Australian mother and an Irish father. She started creating animations at a very young age. As a child her father, Martin Carroll (also an animator who worked for Hanna Barbara and Disney Studios in Australia), showed her Ani Pro, one of the first 2D animation programmes released for MSDOS in 1989. She would create Cool Cats animations with this software and act out the sound effects and music to her family.

At age 11 her family moved to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Here she attended Dutch artistic high-school IVKO, where she continued to create animations. At 16 her animated shorts The Magic Trousers and City Of Hats won 1st prizes at the NFFS (Netherlands Film Festival for Students), Camera Zizanio Film Festival, Rozentuin Festival and Woof! Festival. Her animation was also featured in a Dutch blockbuster movie Radeloos (based on the bestselling Carry Slee book).

She then attended HKU Utrecht University of Art, Media & Technology where she created Weird Beard (1st prize winner at The Best Of HKU Festival) and The Cool Cats Show (a live show which mixed together live performance, magic-acts and animation). During her studies she travelled to Japan to receive traditional animation training from master animators at GONZO, one of the leading Anime studios in Tokyo (creators of Afro Samurai , Welcome to NHK , Super Street Fighter IV cut-scene animations, Full Metal Panic , Transformers: Cybertron, Brave Story and many more classic Anime). She was not only the company’s first intern, but the first Westerner to work at the Anime studio. She travelled to Japan again to attend Kyushu University of Design as an exchange student in Fukuoka. Here she collaborated with Japanese artists on several projects including games, comic-strips and her graduation work Zen Zen Wakaranai : No Idea, which was screened at animation festivals around the world.

She has worked on various projects for companies including creating an animated mini-series Wezen Levens for Dutch children TV station Zappelin 24, animations for the Ned 2 television quiz show 2 Voor 12 , an animation for an experimental short film and theatre performance Joe Meek , animation for theatre show Heel Zachtjes Aanraken which toured The Netherlands and a Wisebits film for the TV station RVU intended for Trams, TV and Internet. Together with musicians The Doppelgangers she created several Kimono & Chibby Chan cartoons. The mysteriously masked band-members are living versions of the characters in the cartoons and perform together with the animations. She is also the director, an animator and host of Future Vision Amsterdam, an on-going arts & culture TV show broadcast on SALTO TV Amsterdam and chibbychannel.com.

In 2015 she moved to Osaka, Japan to work for animation studio Tochka and attend Osaka Electro-Communication University as a researcher. Together with Tochka they created Light Painting With Aliens, an interactive installation for children exhibited at NHK's event Nishinomiya Art Garden. Children would help Emily the Alien in an interactive story by drawing small animated loops with coloured lights using a slow shutter speed camera. Their drawings would power Emily's spaceship, help Emily's ship dodge meteorites in space and save a monster from loneliness. At the end of each day of the exhibition all the children's drawings were collected together and projected as animated films. She also created animations for performances and workshops by the KDE Kyoto Dance Exchange and a handdrawn animated short Lullaby For Lily which screened at international animation festivals.

While living in Osaka she interviewed several Japanese artists including Keiichi Tanaami, Ryo Inoue, Mirai Mizue, Takeshi Nagata and Kazue Monno. She discovered that these artists create not just animated films, but also hybrids of animation with performance, technology, sculpture and installation. This innovative use of modern technology and unusual combination of animation with other mediums led her to continue living in Japan to write a book about the cutting-edge of contemporary animation in Japan entitled Anime Beyond The Screen. Hybrid animation or hybrid media is a term she created to describe animation with an additional real element outside of the screen or 'animation beyond the screen'. In 2017 she moved to Tokyo to study at the Graphic Design Department Master course of Tama Art University. Under the tutorship of Tatsutoshi Nomura (director of Stray Sheep children's animated mini-series on Fuji Television) she created Otaku Boi. This 'hybrid animation' mixes Chiptune music, hand-drawn and pixel animation, collage, a giant puppet and a live performer on stage. The stage show was also adapted into an animated short also entitled Otaku Boi . The music includes collaborations with Chiptuners Carf Darko & Blipsqueek, KamiSama (singer from The Doppelgangers), guitarist Memento Mori and guidance from musician Satoru Wono (a member of Maywa Denki and musician for games, TV series, movies and commercials including SUPER PINBALL 2, RacinGroovy and Digimon Super Evolution Series).

According to Fay Heady-Carroll ''with Otaku Boi I aspired to create a modern day Gertie The Dinosaur, created in 1914 by Winsor Mc Cay. This pioneering animation merged animation with live performance in Vaudeville theatre. It is Japan that seems to me to be at the forefront of implementing McCay's ideas of combining live performing arts with animated characters. We see it in Japan's high and low culture, from the peak of mainstream pop with Hatsune Miku, to artists like Keiichi Tanaami, Tochka, Ryo Inoue, Akihiko Taniguchi and Himeda Manabu to live concerts with Omodaka and YMCK. By writing books and documenting this field as well as creating my own hybrid animation projects I wish to continue growing as an active participant and practitioner in the modern Japanese art world.''

Fay Heady-Carroll currently lives in Tokyo where she works on various freelance projects for companies and personal projects. She also organizes annual Fay's Film Festival screenings in The Netherlands and Japan.

ANIWAY POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
Issue 34 (Dec 2013) & 35 (March 2014)


Articles and interview 'THE MAKING OF ANIME: From Idea to TV'
and 'Internship at Gonzo: An Animator in Japan'

"As I ride my bicycle through the streets of Tokyo down to GONZO studios in Nerima I realize Japan really is a cartoonist's paradise. Animation and comic-books are a part of everyday life. They are omnipresent, in the giant plasma-screens in city centers, on the trains, pachinko parlors, company mascots and supermarkets creating a vast rainforest of styles and sub-genres. It has been my dream to work as an animator in Japan ever since I could first pick up a pencil. It is one of the few places in the world were traditionally hand-drawn animation techniques using pencil, paper and time-sheets are still the norm and not the exception. I wanted to work in Japan for this very reason. I wanted to see and learn these hand-drawn animation techniques not often seen in today's largely digital animation(...)"

"Nick Park, move over, Fay will be the new Oscar Winner for animation"

Yes, we, the jury, were really impressed by how enthralling her films are (...) her work is really fantastic and was already professional and a broadcastable quality at a young age. That's just the way it is (...)

She fully deserves first prize."

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

Amsterdam Alternative Issue #020, September 2018

The Revolution is Being Televised

Tune in to, turn on or drop by Future Vision Amsterdam, ‘free space’ of the airwaves. Co-hosted by Fay and alter-ego Mario The Sailor Man, FVA has come up with the goods on SALTO 1 TV week after week since 2014 with nothing more than a bundle of talents and a can-do attitude. Future Vision Amsterdam is an arts show, a game jam, a screening, a magazine programme, it’s a TV party. In its 6 seasons so far, FVA’s timeline chronicles not only the many hairstyles of Fay but a period of intense transformation in Amsterdam’s underground scene.

‘Thanks to SALTO, our family of artists had the opportunity to work in the retro medium of television at a time when opportunities in Amsterdam’s live free spaces were narrowing. We feel privileged. Where else do you see live TV, apart from during sports and disasters?’ says co-presenter and animator Fay, ‘and where else would we have such creative freedom? We asked SALTO ‘Are there any censorship restrictions?’ They said ‘Just don’t do anything illegal’. That gives a lot of scope as we are a late night show. We did run into a problem once by accidentally showing the label of a beer bottle ( the programme is a strictly no-commercial-advertising zone, which is only a plus as far as I’m concerned) but SALTO has never sought to censor our content in spite of the occasional cock and balls. Actually, our show is really positive, fun and entertaining. We like to keep it gay!’

Nevertheless, television is a notoriously voracious beast. ‘It is scary and a lot of work to create so much content. We work as a collective, mining the creativity and ingenuity of our team in Tokyo, Osaka and Amsterdam,’ says Fay. The collective includes Tokyo-based producer/editor/poet/performer Claudio Sanzana. The Warp Zone video game content is hosted by game devs Molly and Erik of the games company Arcane Circus. ‘We’re open to - receive contributions from like-minded makers from many countries. Amsterdam is the draw. Of course, many artists are delighted to have their work broadcast in the coolest city on the planet!’ says Fay.

‘Looking back, I have fond memories of series 1 & 2 even though some of what we did was as ropey as fuck. We were inspired by public access television, especially the way Glenn O’Brien’s TV Party (1978-1982) presented the New York scene of the time. We wanted to do something like that in Amsterdam. It’s endlessly fascinating to see interesting people when they’re not particularly ‘on’’, she adds. This immediacy is also at the heart of the work of the great American photographer Gary Lee Boas, who has taken pictures of every Hollywood and Broadway star you can think of since the 1970s. Gary and his colourful anecdotes are regularly featured on FVA in ‘Gary Lee Boas Shooting Stars’.  Look out for his upcoming Glamour Special in the new season.

Known locally as ‘that show with all the weird people’, FVA punches above its weight in terms of quality content. One of the first interviews was with notable Dutch Artist Theo Jansen, creator of Strandbeesten. The archives also include exclusive interviews with Paul Rudish, creator of Disney’s brilliant recent Mickey Mouse reboot; drag superstar Latrice Royale; and iconic avant-garde bands Acid Mothers Temple, OOIOO and Holland’s own FCKN BSTRDS. Multiple award winning Japanese animated shorts have premiered on the show. The new series of Future Vision Amsterdam will feature the brilliant Dutch animator Paul Driessen, a key creator of The Beatles’ ‘Yellow Submarine’ which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. 

You can catch Future Vision Amsterdam shorts throughout the week, and the full shows on Fridays 11pm on SALTO 1 TV. For those who have missed out, search the Future Vision Amsterdam archive at salto.nl or visit chibbychannel.com and futurevisionamsterdam.com for episodes, free games and more.

Rozentheater magazine Interview
Issue 7, 2011/2012

Fay Heady Carroll was 4 when she made her first drawings which grew into moving animations. In 2008 she won the Rozentuin Festival with her Impressive animated films 'Magic Trousers' and 'City of Hats'

What did the Rozentuin Festival mean for you?
Before I took part in the Rozentuin Festival, people weren't aware about how much I draw. When I showed my animations to my classmates they were very enthusiastic, so we entered my films into the Rozentuin Festival. It opened a lot of doors for me. Winning a prize is good for your CV and it brings some publicity with it. I even got to do an interview with the Volkskrant.

What are you doing now?
I'm doing a bachelor in Animation at the HKU School of Arts Utrecht. I also recently had the unique experiance of doing an internship with GONZO, a leading Anime studio in Tokyo, Japan. Here I was trained my master animators. I wasn't only their first intern, but the first westerner to work in the studio

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I'd like to work in Asia. It's the most exciting place for animation today.

And the Rozentheater?
I sometimes go to shows which inspire my animations. I also like combining theatre and animation together, which can be seen in my newest work 'The Cool Cats Show'.

 "....I'd like to work in Asia. It's the most exciting place for animation today....."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interview for The Fiber, HKU Online Magazine, 2008

"...I've known my whole life I wanted to be an animator..."

Fay Heady Carroll, first year animation student. She was born in Dublin (Ireland) and lived in Amsterdam since she was 11.

Logical

Why did Fay choose animation? That’s difficult for her to say. The reason for this is different than you'd think. 'I've known my whole life I wanted to be an animator'. So, the HKU was the logical choice for her. 'Animation has nothing to with ideology for me; it's just something I just have to do'. It's easy to see that Fay is very creative. 'You could say animation is a combination of lots of disciplines and that's why it's such a fantastic medium'. She defiantly started young. Fay made her first animation at the age of four on a computer animation program in DOS.

Tarantula

When asked what an animation-student is like, Fay has a short answer 'It's a free spirit. Animation requires embracing your creativity and fantasy. Perhaps that can make animators pecular, but I'm fine with that. You could say animators are true to themselves.' This is different to the image of a shy, nerdy comicbook fan with a tarantula as a pet. 'No I wouldn't mind working for a commercial company. You've got to earn your bread.'

Experience

Fay already has some experience in the commercial world. When Fay took part in the NFFS, Netherlands Student Film Festival, she won first prize. The producers of the new Carry Slee film 'Radeloos' got in touch with her. They wanted to use her animations in their film.

Cat Club Comic

It's clear Fay finds personal expression very important. When Fay was in primary school she made her own magazine 'The Cat Club Comic’, which she photocopied for her classmates. The need to share her 'thing' with others is certainly still there.

'What makes me happy is to make things that I find beautiful, especially if there are other people who can enjoy it too.'

Interview and illustrations

"(....)next year I am going to study animation at the HKU. I've already had offers to make animations for companies, tv-channels and films(...)"

"An amazing animated film by the creative 18 year old artist(...)"

"The winner of the Rozentuin Festival will be assured a place at the Woof! Festival. This year the winner is the promising Irish Fay Heady Carroll (18) who won with her film The City of Hats. It's about a girl who hitches a ride on a train to the city and her adventures along the way. Fay: 'I make animations in a traditional 2D-way; hand drawn, collage, sometimes film and a bit of new technology. It's not the easiest way, but has a beautiful aesthetic. Next year I am going to study animation at the HKU. I've already had offers to make animations for companies, tv-channels and films. I mostly make films for myself, to give my fantasies a form, but when others enjoy my work too, even better. "
