Joe Tucker

I grew up in Warrington where I began to make animated films on a super-8 camera. At 19 I made a comedy film on a borrowed VHS camcorder, which I later developed into a series with Steve Coogan's production company, Baby Cow. The BBC rejected it because it contained too many swear words and I was cast as Paul Calf's son in a series which never came to fruition. I gained a first class degree from the Manchester Metropolitan University and applied to the NFTS with three animated films I had produced in my spare time. I have directed a number of short films and music videos over two years at the school, as well as earning commissions from MTV and Robbie Williams. I am currently writing pitches for music video commissioners, hoping that, by the time you read this, I will have been allowed to shoot one of them.
