I’ve been working as an independent animator, mostly in London, since 1998. I began my professional career with “Roobarb and Custard” creator Bob Godfrey, and went on to work on various TV and film productions both for kids (“Yoko Jakamoko Toto”, “The Secret Show”, “Horrible Histories” , “The Moshi Monsters Movie”) and adults (“Monkey Dust”, “Modern Toss”, “2DTV”).
I now spend most of my time creating short films for clients, such as corporate presentations, whiteboard animations, advertising and charity promotions. My philosophy is that animation is often at its best when kept simple – that the visuals should support and communicate the message, rather than be its own centre of attention. My work has been used by corporations such as Blackrock, Unilever, Novartis and PriceWaterhouseCooper.
Although I work independently I have a wide network of creative collaborators who can assist with design, animation, photography, music, voice work and sound effects as required. If you are a creative agency or production studio you may have your own team I can work with. My own skills include script editing, storyboarding, design, animation and direction.
Although I always enjoy working on narrative cartoon-type material, I feel there is a great deal of untapped potential in animation as a tool for communication and education and I’m always looking for opportunities to explore this. With new outlets for visual media appearing almost daily, the possibilities for animation are now greater than ever.
Dennis is a pleasure to work with. He’s a great brainstormer and translates scripts into storyboards and animated films quickly and efficiently and with a friendly, subtle sense of humour. His characterisation and sense of comic timing is great too. I can’t recommend him highly enough as an illustrator, storyboard artist, animator or animation director!

I’ve worked with Dennis on numerous projects over many years. He is an accomplished film-maker and excellent animator, with a strong understanding of acting and comedy timing as well as having great design and communication skills. Dennis works well within a team or running his own team. I hope to work with him in the future.
