Marc Craste is a senior animation director working at Studio AKA in London. He has designed and directed many award-winning commercials including memorable work for Orange, Compaq, Lloyds Bank and the National Lottery.
His 12 minute debut short film ‘JOJO IN THE STARS’ won the 2004 BAFTA for Best Animated Short Film - alongside a host of other international awards.
Marc's latest half-hour animated short, completed late 2008 in between commercials, is based on the book “Varmints”, written by celebrated children’s author Helen Ward.
This is a 10 minute edit of Marc's lecture at the 3rd Pictoplasma Conference on contemporary character design and art, held 2009 in Berlin.
More Talks by artists such as AJ Fosik, Risa Sato, David OReilly, James Jarvis, Gastón Caba and Tim Biskup will gradually be added to the Pictoplasma Talks site here:
