Hi there, welcome to my site.
I’m an English Animator & Designer based in Paris. I’ve worked in a wide variety of creative sectors over the years and my love of music, movement and stories has naturally steered my work towards animation and creating eye-catching, enthusiastic pieces, full of personality and rhythm. I’m passionate about education, the environment and leaving things better than when we arrived.
I specialise in 2D graphic and character animation, working from the initial briefing, through scripting, design, audio and animation stages all the way through to your finished project:
This includes helping clients refine a brief, copy-edit scripts, develop a look for the project with styleframes, plan everything out with a shotlist and storyboards, sound design, voice-over and music selection and then the final animation.
I work closely with end clients as well as creative studios, producing explainer videos, infographics and short-form content for digital platforms. I’m also lucky enough to work regularly collaborate with award-winning Writers, Designers and fellow Animators, which is another reason why I love my job!

“Working with Brendan is a real joy. He's an exceptionally talented animator who is well organised, efficient and highly creative. His editorial suggestions and creative flourishes help take projects to the next level. He's very easy to work with, responsive and diligent. I'd be happy to answer any questions about Brendan. We won't work with any other animators - book him up!”
Rob Orchard - Owner of The Slow Journalism Company
“Brendan has worked with me to support multiple motion design projects; requiring a variation of skills and styes to communicate wide-ranging brand identities and messaging. His ability to support both the development and execution of concepts, on time and on brief, make him a pleasure to work with and a trusted pair of hands. Brendan is often my first (and last) port of call for new motion design requirements and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him in this regard.”
Ryan JD Moore - Creative Producer/Director - Outlook Creative
“I collaborated with Brendan on several projects and it’s always a pleasure to work with him. He’s full of ideas, friendly, professional, and very responsive. He’s not only skilled in animation, he’s also great with art direction, project managing, script writing, storyboarding… All you need to create great animation! Also Brendan is very inclusive in the creative process, he regularly gives updates on the progress which makes everything very easy to follow. Highly recommended!”
