Freelance Designer for Film & Animation

  • Location Cardiff, United Kingdom
  • Local time Unknown
  • Experience Not specified

I'm predominantly a visual development artist working in the UK animation industry. Having studied traditional animation at degree level I was fortunate enough to secure an immediate position on Sylvain Chomet's Oscar-nominated 2D feature, The Illusionist, as a Junior Animator which strengthened and solidified my understanding of the art of traditional animation. Upon finishing work on The Illusionist, I secured a year long job on Aardman's Arthur Christmas as a Prop Designer, a CG feature produced in collaboration with Sony Pictures Animation which took me in the direction of my true passion, design. This acted as a springboard to work as a freelancer in London on all manner of commercial projects doing a wide variety of design related jobs whether it be backgrounds, layouts, environments, props, vehicles, characters, concepts or storyboards. I am always on the lookout for new freelance opportunities and regularly create illustration work outside of the field of animation. I'm passionate about the work I do and confident in my ability to deliver which underlies a discipline and dedication to my craft.
