studied animation at the Hull School of Art and Design,
experimenting with numerous animation techniques including
paint on glass, scratching directly onto film, mono-prints
and manipulated photography. I also made two pixillation
films there, before directing and animating a 5-minute cel
animation, Lost Property.
then joined the NFTS where I have concentrated on developing
my narrative skills. In my first year at the School, I wrote
a children's animated series, directed actors in a short
live action shoot and created a short film, Terminus.
this I took a year out to teach film and animation to adult
learners, university graduates and school children. Returning
to the NFTS, I started work on my graduation film, Lightman,
a 2D illustrated cut-out animation. I also animated and
directed two 'Art Breaks' for MTV.
I am currently developing a number of short animated scripts
for which I am seeking funding, whilst also looking for
commercial work and studio representation.
