My work at LipSync Post VFX is nearly done, it was great to work on both "The Great Ghost Rescue" (2011) and "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" (2012) as an animator. I should be free for more work from March onwards.

You may notice the image above. I'm now a registered freelancer for the Aardman CGI Department! :D Hopefully this will mean I will eventually get to work on some awesome projects for them in the future. Kind of a dream of mine to work for them ever since I was a kid, so should be awesome! I've also applied to work on Arthur Christmas, so we'll see how that goes.

I'll be re-designing my website in the coming weeks/months as finding the time to properly update this current version is a bit time consuming. As ever, please feel free to contact me for competitive work rates at any location. Cheers!

Philips Cinema Teaser!

I can now start to post some stuff from the recent Philips Cinema Short Film/Advert I worked on at Hi-Sim, for Ridley Scott Associates & Philips. I was one of four Character Animators who worked on all four characters in the film. I also did most of the space backgrounds. It was great fun - you can watch the teaser trailer here.

I've also just worked for Black Labs Bristol (Ben Mars) on some stuff I cant talk about yet. You should start seeing it soon though!

I'm once again available for work. Thanks for looking!

Happy New Year! (Also, updates!)

Happy New Year everyone, thanks for visiting!

No, I haven't been lost, I've just been so busy in the last few months I've not been able to update much.


Yes, I updated my showreel not long ago. You can see it by clicking on the 'showreel' button to your left.

Also, I'm currently working at Hi-Sim in Bristol (literally just round the corner from Aardman) as a Maya Character Animator on a Commercial. It's really great, really epic, and I'm soaking up knowledge from animators like Campbell McAllister , Scott Pleydell-Pearce & Ben Mars. They're awesome guys. This is by far the best work I've produced and as soon as I get the go-ahead I'll be sharing it with the world.

I'm looking for more animation work after January, so if you like my work contact me and we'll talk. See you all soon!

Third Time's a Charm!

So I just learned that the third animated short I've worked on for the AiR Scheme at the University of Wales, Newport, has won (for the third year in a row) a Depict Award! :)

I worked with Rebecca Manley and Luca Paulli on their short 'Breaking the Mould' (2008) completed as part of the University of Wales Newport’s Animator in Residence scheme. I worked as a character animator and helped Luca animate some of the main character as well as a little rigging. My congratulations to them and the whole team!

You can view the short film in it's entirety below:

This is the third year in a row that I've worked on an animated short that has won a Depict award. I'm very proud of this achievement.

In other work related news, I recently finished some freelance work with Calon (Cardiff), who I have worked for in the past. Although I cannot share the work due to NDA, I was a Maya/Character Artists and gained yet more studio experience.

I am now available once again for freelance or full-time employment. Please contact me at obraxis(at)cgbox(dot)com!

Available for work! *New Showreel!*

It's been a while since I last posted. That's mainly because I've been working solidly on an animated short film (which has now been completed). While I can't post the short online just yet, I have included some scenes in my new showreel which you can see by clicking over on the left menu on Showreel. It's currently available online or via post on DVD.

So now that my short film is completed, I'm currently available for full-time work and/or relocation anywhere as an Animator. I'm actively looking for a place of work that is fun, exciting and engaging whether that be in the Games Industry or VFX/Animation Industries.

I'm looking forward to animating and being creative for a living!
(P.S will animate for Pepsi)
