Our newest animation tutor is Framestore animator Michelle From, a graduate of the excellent Animation Workshop in Denmark, whose filmography includes Sherlock Gnomes, a soon-to-be-released feature film made right here in London.
Michelle was also the lead animator on her graduation film ‘Tsunami’, which was included in the official Cinéfondation selection at Festival de Cannes.
Michelle has recently worked on the forthcoming animated film Sherlock Gnomes. You can see her IMDB page here, and you can also see "Tsunami", the superb short film she worked on as a student at the Animation Worskhop in Denmark.
You can also see her animation showreel below.
