A short selection of my feature stop motion animation from Tim Burton's Corpse BridePeter & the WolfBunny & the Bull, Fantastic Mr FoxGoutte D'or, & The Magic Piano. Well technically they're not all feature film length but required a similar level of quality! It's always a great privilage being able to work on such big scale productions.

My work from Tim Burton's Frankenweenie will be included shortly!

The Mighty Boosh director Paul King made his first feature film Bunny & the Bull in 2008. The film was live action with the grand finale being a bull fight, interacting a live action actor with a stop motion bull. The live action was shot in advance & we had to make the bull blend with actor Simon Farnaby’s movements. We had just 2 weeks to animate this full 2 minute sequence, working literally day & night at Clapham Road studios, London. Despite being exhausting, it was a wonderful experience with an intimate team of truly fantastic people!

It was a rare opportunity as this type of work is typically made in CGI these days. I was very honored to be invited to Ray Harryhausen’s house to talk through this sequence. It was fascinating discussing the techniques he used & where things have changed or indeed stayed the same!
