Originally from the West Midlands now based in the south of England, Liam is a recent graduate of the National Film and Television School (NFTS) obtaining a Distinction Master’s Degree in Directing Animation. Since then, Liam has been signed by Glassworks Productions London as their 2D Animation Director, working on projects for clients such as Channel 4, Beano, Ralph Lauren, Barbour and Basement Jaxx.
From a young age, Liam was inspired to work in hand-drawn animation, having grown up with the likes of Raymond Briggs books, Glenn Keane’s paper drawn characters and Joanna Quinn’s energetic yet fluent pencil on paper animation, a traditional style he has since adopted into his film making. Liam is a collaborator and a passionate storyteller who is always looking for the next tale to tell.
Liam’s Graduation animated short film ‘Perched’ has won over 40 awards and was also shortlisted for a Student Academy Award in 2017. ‘Perched’ has since been showcased at almost 150 film festivals worldwide.
