Animated Review

  1. How do you ensure contentment? A good pessimist knows just how.

    In this film for The School of Life, I teamed up with an amazing group of artists, exploring a mix of different animation techniques to tell you how you can become a good pessimist.

    All this is written and narrated by the great philosopher Alain de Botton.

  2. I directed and designed these idents for the kids TV channel Pop, to go out over Halloween. Our brief was to create something spooky and also funny, so me along with my co-writer Baker Terry came up with 8 different stories involving spooky monsters getting it all wrong. A sort of 'You've Been Framed' of spooky goofs. I then teamed up with a bunch of super talented animators and sound designers to make it all happen.

    Animation Breakdown: vimeo.com/157913307

    Pete's Story is a true account of a boy that suffered from his mother's violence over his childhood years in the UK. NSPCC and Lovers invited me to create this frame by frame watercolour ink animation to communicate the story’s haunting and delicate atmosphere.

    NSPCC is the leading children's charity in the UK and is widely known for its long fight for childhood protection. The film was used to reach out potential donors and to create awareness among young people about child abuse and what NSPCC can do to help.

    The idea was to convey a mixture of fear, solitude and the imminence of violence confined inside this labyrinthic house, in contrast with the green touch points that show potential (but unused, in this case) interfaces between Pete and NSPCC. I worked five months to create this watercolour animation frame by frame, on paper, and then compose it digitally in post production.

    Special thanks to Alex Ostrowski and Ally Carter for their trust, motivation and support.
