I am a screenwriter, director and animator, based in Scotland. In 2018, my short film, Widdershins, premiered at Edinburgh International Film Festival. It has since won three awards, including Best Animation at the BAFTA Scotland Awards, and has screened at over thirty film festivals worldwide. It was funded by the British Film Institute through the Scottish Film Talent Network and featured the voice talent of Brian Cox. A short film that I wrote previously, High Maintenance, won 12 awards at international film festivals, and my animation, The Testament of Gideon Mack, was nominated for a Scottish BAFTA. I’m now developing a feature film concept and a children’s series, and I am looking for producers to take these forward.
I provide animation and motion graphics on a freelance basis to a wide range of clients including animation studios, production companies and marketing agencies. I have over a decade of experience in this field. I have worked on commercial and public sector projects in a diverse range of styles for clients such as Cbeebies, BBC Scotland and Alain de Botton’s The School of Life. These projects have included web content, adverts, children’s programs, title sequences, mobile apps, VFX and 360 degree virtual reality. I’m a fluent daily user of Cinema 4D and Adobe Premier, Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects. I have strong traditional drawing skills, and can create concept art and storyboarding. I can also provide scriptwriting. I have a degree in Film, Photography and Imaging. Please say hello if you would like to discuss a project.
