As an animation producer I'm responsible for several 'viral' videos including the BAFTA-longlisted 'Tim Minchin's Storm'. I also create produce and write educational animations, particularly in science, and can create animated commercials for online or television. I use a team of UK-based animators and frequently collaborate with director DC Turner.
Below is some of the work I'm most proud of.
Chris Hadfield's It's Not Rocket Science
Producer, co-director and script consultant for the pilot episode of an animation starring astronaut Chris Hadfield, with supporting social support including crowdfunding (Patreon) and a major livestreamed event which attracted over 10,000 viewers. As the show is currently in development, the pilot is not available to view online but can be supplied on request.
Tim Minchin's Storm
Producer and marketing consultant for the Tim Minchin animated short, Storm. The project started life as a beat poem written and performed by Tim Minchin. The animated version, at ten minutes in length, is one of YouTube's biggest animated viral hits with over four million views. Social media support included a microsite, dedicated Facebook and Twitter accounts, and free 'added value' content including wallpapers and behind-the-scenes videos. The animation was BAFTA-longlisted and premiered at Bristol's Animated Encounters, and in 2015 was reimagined as an illustrated book.
ENCODE: The Story of You
Scriptwriter and producer of a humorous animated short commissioned by Nature Magazine and ENCODE to tell the story of the history of genetics. Animated by DC Turner, narrated by Tim Minchin.
Co-written with Adam Rutherford and Andrew Ellard.

Producer and scriptwriter of a promotional online advertisement for mobile feedback platform Antenna.
