What is your favourite British animation of all time?
A very difficult question. And I can’t choose just one, sorry.
Right now, the ones that pop into my head are:
Park’s The Wrong Trousers, Hunt’s Ah Pook is Here, David Anderson’s Door, the Quays’ Unnameable Little Broom
Please ask me again tomorrow, I may come up with a few more favourites.
What’s the best thing about working in the industry?
The daily realization of actually doing something I love.
