About me

Hello! My name is Jack Bennett - I'm an animator and director from Bristol. I like to draw and write and make things, and I'd like to do more of all three. Recently I have completed my new short film 'Not the End of the World', and I currently work at Aardman Animations. I like watching football and eating liquorice.
