I make short animated films

I have made animations for Save the Children, The Institute of Environmental Sciences, and just for kicks. I like to draw as much as possible by hand and then use a computer to whizz it up. Few things in life are so time-consuming and so satisfying.

 
 

A recent showreel with clips from various projects:

 

DUCK! - an unusually tough duck stands up to an annoying dog

 

Are You Spreading Poo? - this short animation was nominated for an award at the London International Animation Festival 2009 and screened at the Renoir Curzon cinema in London. It's about shit - I would have made something a lot more pleasant, but it was for this competition.  Written and directed by me and my brother Rob.

 

Breathe Inwards - this isn't really an animation. But hey why not sit back, press play, and let your mind and body relax!

 

Lucky Lion - a short film written by me and my brother and starring me as an infuriatingly lucky lion with a sketchy South African accent. If it feels rough around the edges that's because it was written, filmed and edited in 48 hours for the Smoke & Mirrors 48 hour film competition. To our DISBELIEF, it didn't win!!
