Here is a link to an episode of the new childrens TV series 'Toby's Travelling Circus' currently aired on Channel5 and produced by Komixx Entertainment. I am lucky enough to have worked for Mackinnon and Saunders (who create the puppets and animation) as an animator on this show. This link is from the channel 5 website so will only be available for a limited time. I have linked to this particular episode as it has a few distinct scenes that I animated. My animation can be seen at 03:47-4:17, 04:25-05:00, 07:53-8:00 (Freddo the Clown only) & 08:13-08:38 (Freddo the Clown only). Enjoy!
October to December 2011 I worked as a stop-motion animator for Edinburgh based company Kolik on a series for Disney called 'Quiet is...'. It aired in the US early 2012. Here are a couple of the episodes we created! I animated the origami/paper crane in Quiet is...the Night Sky, and the wiggly worm in Quiet is...a Napping Kitten.

It's been a long time since I last posted about the miniature blanket I knitted (or indeed since I last posted at all!) ...so finally here it is...Bombay Bicycle Club's 'How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep' directed and animated by Anna Ginsburg. The blanket was designed and made to be unravelled during the animation. Each patch was separately hand knitted and then held together with thin wire. Enjoy! Anna G has done a beautiful job, the lighting is especially atmospheric.
