Hi, I'm Heather! I am currently working as a Junior Animator for Flock, based in London. I recently worked as a Junior CGI Animator and Junior Compositor at Factory Create in Manchester- on the ITV puppet show 'Newzoids', and on a stop motion summer special for Disney.

Graduate of Computer Character Animation from Teesside University.

3D Animation is where I hang my hat (both realistic and cartoon-ish), although I also work with 2D Animation, Compositing, Layout and Stop Motion de-rigging. Above all I really enjoy working with great storytelling and a range of characters/styles to create believable personalities, movement and experiences for an audience. 
I'm a big lover of film and all things artsy/creative.
(Also a big lover of cake. And Harry Potter.)
