Character Designer and Animator
John’s TVC Work has seen him based in London, Sydney and Melbourne. Animating Australian animals is both a passion and his forte. This is evidenced in much of his work: as is designing such characters. For Dennis Tupicoff’s CHAINSAW and INTO THE DARK he animated 4 minutes of magpies, kookaburras, crows and sparrows using live action reference. Realistic animation was required in these mostly rotoscoped, (traced live action), films. In John’s films THE EMU AND THE SUN and LIZARD native animals feature prominently, the designs are whimsical.
