Rich Jeffrey Director at Flux Animation

Many congratulations to Escapee Rich Jeffrey who is now a director at Flux Animation, a boutique animation house based in Aukland, New Zealand - where Rich lives and works.  Rich took our three month intensive character animation course at Escape Studios, and since then has forged a successful career in both 2D and 3D animation.  Check out the excellent demo reel above, which he put together while studying at Escape.

After leaving Escape Studios, Rich found work at Tiger Aspect Productions, where he directed a Pilot episode of Fingers McGraw for a new TV series.
Rich has also worked as a freelance animation artist at Studio Joho, creators of Dan The Man, and animators of The Adventures Of Kim Jong Un.

Rich's demo reel is fluid, well-timed, funny and entertaining.  Animators need to be more than just technicians - we must be performers, and give the audience a reason to watch our work.
