About

Steamroller exists to breathe life into stories, characters, and experiences in visual, physical, and virtual spaces. Each project that comes our way, be it a game, a film, or a theme park ride, exists in its own universe. It is our job to bring this multiverse to life. Our animators build believable characters and whole worlds in a multitude of universes, while our developers manipulate the rules of perception to transport you to a new definition of reality. We relish the opportunity to bring our clients’ universes to life while also developing our own stories.

I’m an experienced video game and motion picture animator of 15+ years or a “grizzled veteran” as my AD called me. Specialising in character and vehicle keyframe animation, body mo-cap Cleanup, facial keyframe animation and facial capture polish. Utilizing off the shelf and proprietary animation software for PC, console and mobile games. As long as I’m animating Ive never worried about what the end output will be, PC, Mobile, Cinema, Console.
