Dion Clark

Dion graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sound Design), with distinction and honours, from the Queensland University of Technology in 2012. In addition to his practice as a PhatCo sound designer Dion is currently completing a PhD which considers the role of dialogue in animation. This is a practice-led project, being conducted within the highly regarded QUT Creative Industries Faculty.

Even in his spare time Dion enjoys nerding out about sound, but also likes hip-hop and electronic music, gardening, brewing beer, and being far too particular about coffee.

Phatimation! It’s a sound design party.

February 13, 2013

Phatimation! A special screening of six short animations that feature sound by Dion Clark aka PhatCo.

This event will highlight the collaborative nature of animation, with a focus on the appreciation of sound, and the role it plays in bringing animations to life.

Featuring real live musical performances by Rob Zosars of LeSuits fame, and the ever angelic Kathleen Maloney.

Phatimation is an opportunity to meet and network with the animators themselves, as well as the voice actors, composers, and the sound designer.

It’s at a lovely little space called Bird Gallery and Studio, 181 George Street Brisbane, just duck down the lane!

PhatCo sound design featured at Endslate 2012

December 7, 2012

I was fortunate to have designed sound with some fantastic final year animation students this year. The resulting animations were recently screened at Endslate 2012, the QUT Film, Screen, and Animation showcase. Two of the animations, Erratus and Wanderers, were even nominated for a peoples’ choice special screening.

My aim with these animated works was to involve sound early in the production process so as to achieve an more cohesive result for sound and vision overall. In all cases this goal was achieved. It was highly rewarding to work with with such a creative and diverse group of animators,  and the resulting works are of a very high standard.

Check out the animations here on this site, or on the phatco vimeo page.

Stay tuned for some special screenings of the the animations, as well as my other sound design work coming up at Bird Gallery and Studio George Street Brisbane, in February 2013.
