This collection of work was briefed by Big Fish, London. After two weeks creating and modifying a series of short playful animations they are now being used on the product website to illustrate and emphasize articles and recipes. These animations were made using Adobe After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop.
Studio: Big Fish. | Animation: Molly Brown
An emotional stop frame animation film. In response to an interview with a Lady who experienced some difficult things as a child, most of all, her Dad leaving. This was the second attempt to capture the delicacy and emotion. My first project using entirely primarily sourced materials, audio through to visuals. Capturing elements of reality, e.g. smoke and light to give a sense of reality but blended into metaphorical visuals.
This project was a slightly rushed animation to sit alongside this years christmas cards made by me. This animation was finished just in time to broadcast it on Christmas day. Made mainly with Plastercine and a couple of extra elements like real pears and LED lights. Stop Frame Animation with a hint of CGI at the end.
A miniature mouse and block of cheese. Both are less than 10mm in diameter. This took patience to new levels. Made with thread and Plastercine. If you look close you can see that there are tiny fibres visible on the cheese.
Created for a Greetings Card.

A logo design for a product called Datacuckoo that logs times spent on different projects that a person or company works on and then neatly converts it into Datafile, the ordering system.
A quick day project set to influence people to Vote. Use of model making was key in this theatrical piece, a simple approach for a complex topic.

Filmed & edited all in a day. (Model Making prep made in advance.) An advert idea for ‘Ebay’ made using stop motion animation.
*Whilst making this film no Ted-Ebay-ers were hurt.
My very first animation back in 2008. Slightly naive but its nice to reminisce. Limited use of colour and mainly made with text.
Made for a Greetings Card, for a man who likes pork pie. A lot. Made with plastercine and no, sadly we couldnt find a tiny little mouse to nibble on the slice so we had to make a pretend bite. Hence the Tiny Mouse project. It was called for, obviously.
At first glance this is a fine demonstration of a replica model. (Bragging a bit!) Didn’t take long really either. Made for the You’re sure of a big surprise film to represent the category of electricals. It’s metal sheet aluminium, card and a drawstring cord.
A new kind of genetically modified potato that is designed to peel itself for you. How handy! - But I dont think potato man knew what was coming, poor Guy.
Not a lot of skills being used here. Just a little fun in the kitchen. Designed to lead on from the Potato animation but never quite got there.
A lengthy project in terms of cutting out with a scalpel for days on end and only hoping its going to work. No practice run at all, which is nearly always a bad move. The technique works nicely, if only it was shot with a better camera. This was all made and the animation shot on a 60cm x60cm coffee table. Surely thats gives it a little extra credit.
A bit of Cockney rhyming slang influencing the artwork here on this greetings card. Congratulations for getting a job. This was a rather quick project, taking just an hour to make a clumsy looking bumble bee with Plastercine and polythene wings. He still hangs about in the kitchen and scares people away from the fruit.
