Madison Meri Ariki Southey

Graduate M.A.T.C.H Intensifier “Rua”

Madison is a trained Graphic Designer, but her passion is for narrative animations. She loves to write and create her own stories, worlds and characters that she plans to make into full-length episodic animations to showcase to the world.

“As a child, I grew up with cartoons, anime and gaming, so that is where I mostly function within creatively. I take a lot of inspiration from those mediums and incorporate that into my work that I am passionate about.

Since I am still learning to draw, I fall back onto my greater strength, which is writing, in order to illustrate what I see in my head out into a format that I could show to others.

But because of what I grew up with animation is the medium that I want to use to make all my written narratives into a visual form that can be shared globally.”
