Freelance AnimatorJames Carbutt
Manchester, United KingdomFreelance
Since Graduating in May of 2017 I have being working as a freelance animator and illustrator on a number of projects. I have gained invaluable experience in independently managing projects from conception to delivery whilst learning to strike the balance between working resourcefully to a deadline and experimenting with creative and original work. Most notably I have collaborated with the philosophy YouTube channel The School of Life on a number of videos in which I sought to deliver the complex and abstract philosophical teachings through entertaining character animation full of personality. My work with The School of Life has gained notable recognition as a result of my original approach towards motion graphics, featuring in It's Nice That.

During my time at the Union I was tasked with the conceptualisation, design and development of engaging motion graphics to help the Union achieve it’s mission of ‘Making Student Life Better’. I collaborated with the design department in producing an array of motion graphics from social media assets to animated signage, whilst managing my time on multiple projects. I learned how to understand and communicate the look and feel of a brand and it’s values through motion design.
