Narrative Animation

The two films I have made at the RCA, Wandaland (2019) and The Sam Story (2020) converge on a few themes: identity, mystery, human psychology, and my lifelong love/hate relationship with popular culture. They're also the most ambitious projects I've ever undertaken, with each film taking almost a year to complete. They're the culmination of many technical and creative skills I've spent years developing, incorporating CGI, 2D animation, digital painting, and extensive After Effects compositing. While I've benefited from some talented collaborators, almost everything you see (as opposed to hear) in my films is my own work, from the graphic design to the character animation.

In the near term I'm hoping to work in the UK animation industry, so if you're part of a studio, please get in touch. I'm also available for freelance work.
