Character Animation

I studied character animation at Central St Martins and have always been drawn to visualising and understanding characters, their movement and behaviour. Characters are so often at the heart of a story.

Here you can see clips from the BAFTA nominated children’s series I worked on with Lion Television for the BBC - ‘The Story of Britain’. I worked on character animation in this series, each person from a different time in British history and with a different story to tell.

La Triste Historia is a piece I worked on with the studio Tick Tock Robot. This was a half hour animation to accompany a live performance by the Houston Symphony Orchestra. This clearly came with its own set of timing challenges as the cues and timings of a live orchestra cannot be exact! Again my role was to focus on the animation of characters including the wolf, birds and butterflies.

I created the below animation for the RCVS, designing and animating a variety of human and animal characters.
