Teaching Fellow in Animation


I am a specialist in Stop-motion animation. I have over 25 years industry experience working on high end Children's series as an animator and a director. My animation credits include "Postman Pat", "TheTwirly Woos", "Roary the racing car" and Andy Pandy" to name a few. I have directed on "Engie Benjy" for CITV and "Boosnoo" for Sky kids. With my own company I have taken on commissions to make adverts for "ASDA" and "Dr Oekter" as well as producing and directing short films.

I have a keen interest in visual story craft and character performance.
