“One of the best things about British animation is, I think, the porous boundary between commercial and personal film making – this makes for muscular and disciplined independent films and exciting and creative commercial work. Also, the rich history of British animation is enriched by the number of international incomers. Long may that last! Personal favourite – maybe ‘The Comb’ by the Quay Bros.”
