Working On The Tale of Despereaux

So the reason I am so behind on my AM posts is down to the fact I landed a job at Framestore working on their first full CG film called "The Tale of Despereaux". I was just finishing class 5 of AM and one night I got a call to attend a 'chat' at Framestore. And then before I knew it I had a job as a professional animator at Framestore. I was working there for around 7 months and the animation crew was fantastic to work with. Sam Fell and Rob Stevenhagen who directed the team, were great to work with and really nice guys to talk too (yes they took the time to talk to you).

Congratulations to you on landing a job at Framestore! I've seen several trailers and TV spots advertising The Tale of Despereaux, and the animation itself is lovely. In addition, I took a look at some of your work/animation and it's awesome, so I can definitely see how you secured a position at the said studio.

Again, great work!
