My name is Billy. I am a 3D Animator finishing my 4th year at Escape Studios. I simply love animating things. It is my favourite thing to do, alongside playing guitar. I would love to work either as a junior animator or a previs shot creator.

Describe yourself in 5 words.

Friendly, Communicative, Creative, Driven, Open.

What makes you unique?

Despite wanting to work on big feature films and series, I don't actually have a huge passion for watching them. I simply enjoy the process of animating things, as opposed to being driven to work on a certain film or series.

Tell us an achievement you're proud of.

I achieved a 1st class in my first 3 years at Escape studios, despite finishing remotely. Hopefully I continue that in my 4th year.

Describe a challenge that you had to overcome in your group projects.

The biggest one has been working remotely during the pandemic. My current team project has been developed completely remotely. However, having regular voice calls on Discord has helped us build a strong and unified team, especially when many of my teammates are people I have never met in real life.

Would you rather be a wizard, Jedi or superhero? and why?

I would be a Jedi because then I would be part of a wider group, all working together towards a common cause.

Which game or movie inspired you the most to choose this career path?

When The Lion King came out in 2019, it really solidified the idea that I wanted to do Creature Animation. The level of realism in the animation was unlike anything I had ever seen.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

Finishing the third year Unreal Engine project. As a Lead Animator it was great to see the film win awards and tell a story that clearly resonated with people.
