“Back in 2006 I was one of the fortunate AUB grads who started their careers on Sylvain Chomet’s The Illusionist. After a year in live-action props, I couldn’t resist the chance to work on a 2D feature, initially as a layout artist and then as an animation assistant within a talented international team.
“This led to a move to Paris for more exciting projects, such as the pilots of Longway North and Red Turtle, a supervisory role in the Philippines, and one apartment move too many! So I headed back to London in 2013 and the jobs have steadily rolled in. It seems that software such as TVPaint has helped rejuvenate the 2D industry.
