Listed below are various research projects, articles and reports that I have carried out - both academic and personal.
‘An Approach to Independent 3D Animation Production’ is a 100,000 word dissertation completed as part of Bachelor of Arts in Design, which received 1st Class Honours. The project included a presentable prototype of a 3D animated cultural film ‘Lech, Czech & Rus’. (Please see the Animation section of this website for images of the film).
The aim of the Honours project was to investigate the feasibility of creating a 3D animated series as an independent animator. This was carried out through researching independent animation production and undertaking the animation process involved in the production of a presentable prototype of a pilot episode for an animated series, following the independent film-making production model.
There are two parts of the Honours project. 1) The theoretical component, where research of the independent animation production model and process from start to finish is undertaken; which is complemented by 2), the practical component, which involves the planning, development and creation of a presentable prototype of a pilot, the first episode of a proposed animated series. The series concept is entitled ‘Legenda: The Realm of Eastern European Legend’, a definitive anthology of Eastern European legend in chronological order.

Historical & Cultural Research
This was a rough information resource I created for myself when I was active on Slavic culture forums and working on my 3D animated cultural films. It contains information from a wide variety of sources and details the origins of the Slavs and the great Slavic mass-migrations. The page was first placed on-line at the beginning of 2003.

Web page about the origins and history of my family name ‘Borzyskowski’. The information contained in the page was originally compiled in 2007 and placed on-line in 2008.
