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.
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.
