Hello! I’m Stephen Thomas, an animator and motion graphics wizard based in Cardiff.
I’m experienced in all areas of the animation process, from directing to hands-on animation work, and am here to help bring your next project to life.
A little bit about me
I’m a highly experienced animator with a love of good storytelling, slick motion graphics and nuanced character animation. I’ve been working in the industry for over 15 years, with clients of all sizes. Alongside creating work for big players – including MTV UK, Virgin Trains, Welsh Government and S4C – I’ve also produced work for agencies, small businesses and one-off projects.
I’m a dab hand at using Blender, Nuke, Adobe After Effects, Moho and Davinci Resolve, and I’m always keen to learn something new. I’m a firm believer in the power of the story; even with the best animation skills in the world, you couldn’t make a masterpiece without a decent understanding of storytelling. Outside of work, I like the work of Don Hertzfeldt, playing video games and taking part in online illustration and animation contests.
If you’re after an experienced animator for your production, I’d be happy to chat. You can check out some of my work above, or drop me a message via my contact page for more information about what I do.
Saving the world
Day by day, the climate crisis we’re facing is becoming an increasingly important issue to each and every one of us. I do the best I can to live a life that has a minimal impact on the health of our world, but that only goes so far. What can an animator do to help save our world?
It’s not much, but I donate 2.5% from each invoice to 350.org. 350.org fights to keep fossil fuels in the ground, is pushing for a renewable future and is fighting to defund the fossil fuel industry. By working with me on a project, not only are you getting a lovely animation, you’ll also be doing a little bit to help make the world a better place.
