I often work as a one woman studio (or
a one woman studio plus a small team of employees), taking projects
from script to screen. When working in this way, I always get involved
with projects at the early development stage, contributing lots of
ideas and developing designs.
I have a great deal of experience of
working for The BBC Comedy department under the title of 'Animator',
which encompasses roles of director, animator, storyboarder and
I've designed, directed, animated and
storyboarded BBC Red-button content for shows such as 'That Mitchell
and Webb Look', (BBC2) Helen Keen's 'It Is Rocket Science' (Radio 4)
and Nick Newman and Ian Hislop's 'News at Bedtime' (Radio 4).
I also work in house as part of a
larger team on series and commercials.
I recently worked in house at
Nomint on several adverts for Google Android phones and animated
several series of 'Skatoony' (Cartoon Network).
As a character and location designer I
have created work for a wide range of programmes.
Work includes designing all the
characters and more on 'The Lingo Show' (CBeebies),
locations for the sci-fi show 'Bounty Hamster' (CITV) and content for 'Horizon' (BBC2).
As well as working on kids and adult's
comedy projects, I enjoy making factual content entertaining. I
animated a number of comedy/educational shows and online content for
The Brothers McLeod (CBBC/BBC Bitesize), have animated and
storyboarded BBC Webwise content and recently animated an Apple app
designed to help insomnia sufferers.
My work as a director includes many
animated comedy sketches and a couple of low budget pop videos. I was
also recently live-action on-set director for 'The Floogals' (NBC).
My own short films include an animated/live action documentary 'Walk
Tall', which premièred at the BFI Film festival and screened at film
festivals and won awards around the world.
