AIDAN 

LONERGAN

Highly enthusiastic and passionate rigger who loves to script. I hope to expand my knowledge and skills as a rigger working within film and television. I enjoy creating tools for both riggers and animators alike and love collaborating with other artists to improve my own work as well as the work of those around me. My future ambitions include progression to a Lead Rigger within a company and to help kickstart the career of junior riggers starting out as I enjoy teaching and mentoring others.
