Dorian Terkelsen

Production Manager – Animation Production

BA (Hons) Film and Animation Production (AUB), PGCE for Higher Education (AUB)


A graduate of the BA (Hons) Film and Animation Production course, I spent three years following my graduation as a freelance illustrator. Working mainly for graphic design companies my work ranged from advert and website designs to colour keys for photo shoots and client caricatures. In 2006 I returned to the BA (Hons) Animation Production course in the role of Technician Demonstrator, becoming animation Production Manager in 2013. My main motivation for creating art has always been simple, to fill the world with beautiful imagery. In recent years I have developed a passion for digital painting which is now my chosen medium for my art. I also ride motorbikes, write and I am a professionally trained Bel-Canto singer.

Professional practice

I’m the Production Manager on the BA (Hons) Animation Course at the AUB, a role that includes teaching digital painting and use of specialist software and equipment, studio maintenance, H&S, organising trips, events and festival participation for the graduate productions. I deliver sessions in digital painting to all year groups as well as inductions into the 2D animation software. I keep my professional skills up to date by engaging with various art and illustrations projects.
