Staff on the course

Tim Holleyman

Senior Lecturer – Animation Production


I graduated from The Arts Institute at Bournemouth in 2004 having studied on the animation course. My film ‘Leaf’ was painted with oil on glass. Upon graduation on the course I started work at EA games working as an animator on the Harry Potter franchise. After two years I decided to study and then teach oil painting and traditional drawing at an Atelier in London called Lavender Hill Studios. During this time I took various commissions in portrait and landscape work. I returned to industry as a Concept Artist and Matte Painter working at a number of companies on projects such as Harry Potter, Narnia, Prometheus and Pirates of the Caribbean. I set up a games company and worked as Art Director on a project with Sony before returning to film having most recently worked on Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Terminator Genesis.  You can view some of my work here: and follow my blog here:
