TUTOR: Ashley Thorpe & Graham Hayter

Ashley’s short animated horrors Scarycrow, The Screaming Skull and The Hairy Hands have been screened across the world, winning numerous international awards, and he recently released his feature film Borley Rectory to rave reviews. Ashley uses a wide array of animation techniques including rotoscoping, After Effects and stop motion and encourages those he teaches to experiment and rejoice in the form. He has also provided animated sequences for BBC Manchester and Derren Brown’s Trick of the Mind for Channel 4.

Graham has had over 16 years experience working in the 2D children’s Television animation industry and has worked on a number of shows made by Honeycomb Animation and King Rollo Films including Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids, Binka, Poppy Cat, Funky Valley and Funky Town. Both Funky shows were animated in a digital cut-out style.
