Murray Bryn John

Animation Director

Born: 16th of March 1974


Professional qualifications and skills:
I draw and animate everything by hand and then using a Mac I push my sketches and
simple drawings through photoshop or illustrator where I manipulate them into things
that I like. I then use After Affects and Final Cut Pro to run frames add music and to edit
illustrations into animation.
