Hello, I'm Sean. This is my website.
ABOUT (the narcissistic bit)
Hello lovely people, my name's Sean. I'm an animator, writer and director. Prawnimation is my little home where you'll find my latest work, information and ramblings. Deal with it. I have over a decade of professional animation, post-production, 2D character rigging and motion graphics experience at a variety of different production houses including Framestore, The Operators, Triffic Films, Baby Cow, Tiger Aspect, 20 below, DADA, Happen Digital, Bold Creative, Top That, TwoFour America, Mirriad, Electric Robin, Austin Macauley, Channel 4, Macmillan and many more.
I work in television (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Cbeebies, STV, Community channel, Sky, Virgin Media, Youtube Red and more), documentary, film, viral, published and internet productions and I am always looking for new and exciting projects either long or short term. I'm always making stuff so please try and give me some project notice!
PROFICIENCY (the bit that's even more narcissistic)
Animation, character animation, 2D character rigging, writing, motion graphics, directing, development, photo-retouching, compositing, drawing, team environment skills, design, post-production, flat and digital art, problem solving, fast turnaround pipelines, multi-tasking.
My focus is predominantly in Animation (character and motion graphics), direction, 2D character rigging and post-production but I also have a substantial background in photo-retouching, writing and compositing. I'm willing to partake in any creative role with a strong willingness to learn. I also love writing and being a part of the idea or pre-production process.
SOFTWARE (the nerdy bit)
My 'bread and butters' are After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator but I also have a good Celaction2D, ToonBoom Studio, Flash and Premier knowledge (I also have a wee bit of Mocha, Final Cut Pro, InDesign, iMovieHD and Maya experience - but only a little). I'm totally PC and Mac proficient. I'm also a film and TV nerd and have a dog called Norm.
HIRING ME (the bit that pays my bills)
To hire my services simply drop me an email or give me a call - details can be found on the contact page. I work remotely in my own studio in lovely Essex, but I'm also more than happy to come into town and work alongside a team - don't worry, I am extremely hygenic and happily chip in with tea-making.
