About Me/Showreel

Here is my showreel*:

I’m a character animator with 15 years industry experience. Recently I’ve been animating for kid’s TV shows Digby Dragon, Go Jetters, Tree Fu Tom, Miffy, and Mac & Izzy at Blue Zoo Animation. I also created character animation work on pitch material for a broadcast TV project ‘Boy and the Dinosaur’ for 1461 Limited. I worked both remotely and on-site for Media Molecule on their PS Vita masterpiece ‘Tearaway’ (Sony). Served as Principal Animator on Disneyland Kinect Adventures (Microsoft) for Frontier Developments in 2011. Other video game credits include Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Wererabbit (Konami), Lostwinds: Winter of the Melodias (Frontier), Kinectimals (Microsoft), Kinect Star Wars (Microsoft) and Zoo Tycoon (Microsoft). In 2004 I received an MA in 3D Computer Animation from the National Centre for Computer Animation at Bournemouth (passed with distinction).

Available for character animation work in Maya and 3D Studio Max, animation supervision and small stop motion commissions at reasonable rates. Based in Cambridge, UK.

*My animation showreel is a mixture of professional and personal work. See also my Mac & Izzy reel here vimeo.com/191361064 (not featured on this reel as it was animated at 30fps). All the animation shown was done by me. The models, textures, rigging, rendering etc were almost always done by someone else. The reel features clips from ‘Digby Dragon’, ‘Miffy: Adventures Big and Small’ and ‘Go Jetters’ all animated at a rate of between 5 and 8 seconds/day from layout to final animation. The “Insanity Max” clip uses the Morpheus rig by Josh Burton and the audio is from Darren Aronofsky’s film ‘Pi’. The TRex scene uses the Mery rig from meryproject.com and the T-rex rig from creaturerigs.com The red dragon shots use the Arc rig by Josh Sobel http://www.joshsobelrigs.com The music on the red dragon and T-rex shots is by Sound Phenomenon Studios. I also make cut-out animation and my short silhouette film They Both Explode can be seen here: vimeo.com/52375402
