Ryan Woodward began his career as an animator, designer and storyboard artist in 1995. He has worked on films such as the Spider-man films, Where the Wild Things Are and Ironman 2.
The birth of Thought of You came from his desire to unite several of his passions into one art piece. Figurative works, 2d animation, EFX animation, and contemporary dance. He put together all three of these forms to support a theme centred around the complexities of intimate relationships, and Thought of You was born.
On his website he says:
Rather than creating a narrative animated piece that communicates a well-defined story, this piece allows for each individual who views it to to experience something unique and personal that touches their own sensibilities.
