About Rod

I’m an award-winning (whateverthatmeans) Animation Director who refuses to write in the third person.

At present I function as the Lead Creative at Texture, a small production company in the heart of London. We write, conceptualize, design, film and animate. We also, as part of the job, listen to a lot really bad, mind-hogging songs and carry them home in hums (for the despair of our loved ones).

In my spare time I write good ideas into crappy scripts, which I then re-write until they are half-decent. So far I’ve finished two feature films, half-a-dozen TV pilots and more than a few short films. I got a couple of them produced, but nothing you'd have seen. Yet.

I’ve also probably watched any TV show you can think of. Twice.

I "sound design" my every move through weird noises, I talk to myself constantly no matter who’s around me and I think I’m not immensely fat only because my Restless Leg Syndrome burns calories faster than my shitty diet is able to accumulate them.

Other than that I’m completely normal (whateverthatmeans).

Unique traits: Undisruptable focus, unbeatable confidence, unintelligible handwriting.
