Recently I graduated from Staffordshire University with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Digital Film and 3D Animation Technology. After graduating I was offered a job at Framestore CFC as a runner, and during this time I met some incredibly talented artists working on magical films such as Harry Potter (Apologies for the awful pun). After chatting to a few seniors I was given the opportunity to test my tracking skills for the 3rd Narnia film they were currently working on. The shot was approved and is now in the film! (All two seconds of a background character… but still pretty cool)

While I absolutely loved working at Framestore, being a runner was not exactly the job I had aspired to be doing, so I sent out a few applications to some local companies, and was offered a job at Burrows. I have now been working there for 6 months and have really enjoyed the laid back and friendly atmosphere. (Not to mention the dual quad core, 16gb ram workstation!) Burrows mainly works on car advertising, so expect a few car renders appearing on this site soon!

Moving into the working world has been a really fun and enjoyable experience, and I wish everyone reading this who is currenly studying CGI related courses has a very similar experience.

Thanks for reading.

After spending quite a while fine tuning this website’s new looks I have come to a design that I am very happy with. Fingers crossed you like it too. It’s got all that fancy content management stuff on the back end thanks to wordpress so it’s a doddle to maintain, what a nice change!

I have uploaded most of my work and tutorials, and will upload the rest when I have a chance.

Thanks for reading.
