Luis Cook

Luis has been involved in cartoons in many capacities for 3 decades. As director, designer, writer, story-boarder on commercials, short films, series and features development. He has also worked as a lecturer in the UK, US, France and Denmark. He has won an obscene   mountain of awards, when piled up the peak isn’t visible, but at the top are Bafta’s, the Cartoon D’or and most impressively 5 BAA’s. His genius simply knows no bounds!

What is your favourite British animation of all time?

Pinky and Boo. Derek Hayes. 

It’s a corker. Haven’t seen it in years. 

Sadly, as it’s not online – sort it out Derek.

What’s the best thing about working in the industry?

Spreading animated joy and the smiles on the faces of the little children.

Provide a quirky quote or comment

I was a judge on the BA Awards a few years ago. 

Everyone voted against me and convinced me I was wrong – I did a complete “Ewe” turn. (I’m so sorry – I was backed into a corner.)
