Andrew Martin

Senior Lecturer In Animation

Film is a caricature of life, and animation extends that caricature beyond story to both image and motion… to places other mediums cannot reach.


Growing up in the 1980s and 90s, animation was a staple of my childhood. I spent most of my time on creative endeavours, particularly drawing. I have developed skills and experience in all facets of animation production, and spent much of my career teaching others. My goal is to continue to produce my own work, and to educate and support new talent.
