Filmmaker / Animator

  • Location: East Sussex
  • Career stage: Expert
  • Freelancer: Available

I’m a Brighton based filmmaker and founder of Oddbod Creations. I create mixed media film and animation, combining digital, with practical techniques.

I’ve worked as an animator for 14 years and as the Art Director for a games company called Fat Pebble. In 2012 I created the stop motion video game Clay Jam. Its eye catching style and wacky characters captured the imaginations of all ages. It has been downloaded over 8 million times and was nominated for a BAFTA award. I have recently directed a 20-episode animation tutorial series called Marvellous Makes, for the children’s entertainment platform Azoomee.
