Born in Galashiels, Paul Miller is a Deaf British Sign Language (BSL) user who has spent most of his life in Newcastle upon Tyne. ‘Rory’s Teeth’ was his first animated film.
Paul is keen to go on and develop his work in animation, with more Rory stories (including Rory Get Fit) this is the next in the series of Rory’s stories, and also to work in 3D to produce full Sign Language animated films.
Paul has illustrated two children books, “The beach Tree” written by Noreen Rees and “Cars of many Colours” written by Bob Duncan.
Paul has facilitated a variety of animation and illustration workshops with Deaf and hearing children coming from youth club, schools and at various children film fests. At the most recent workshops Paul worked with a company called Jack drum Art, collaborating in a new project facilitating animation workshops and demonstrating to his audience the art of shadow puppets and how to create them.
