Amazing Animation: Elevating Ideas Through Exceptional Craft

Animation is magic. The fundamental principals remain the same as when it was
first invented, but the materials and processes we are able to utilise now are
incredible. Cutting-edge technologies like 3D Printing, Digital Embroidery, and
CGI integrate seamlessly with classical animation crafts like illustration,
sculpture and puppetry.
As a contemporary animation studio we are constantly pushing the ever-evolving
possibilities that technology brings to our art form, enabling us to elevate ideas
and tell stories that engage both the heart and the mind.
I will present an in-depth look at some recent high-profile, award-winning
advertising projects for the BBC (World Cup 2018 “The Tapestry” and
Christmas 2017 “The Supporting Act”) and Channel 4 (Great British Bake Off)
with extensive behind-the-scenes material and insights on the creative and
production process involved.


Born and bred in Brisbane, Australia, Bart started out in the music industry working for Warner Music while managing a metal band on the side.

He moved to London in 1999 and secured his first role in advertising as a runner, quickly moving up to production assistant, then agency producer, joining Blink Productions and founding Blinkink – their dedicated animation division – in 2005.
