Luke Youngman has worked in animation production for over eighteen years. Five of those were at Aardman Animations in Bristol and the last thirteen have been at Nexus in London, where he is currently Head of Production / EP. From stop-frame to stereoscopic 3D CG, via hand-drawn animation and interactive websites, Luke has worked on short films, commercials, music videos and title sequences, with lots of other bits, pieces and techniques in between. He also has an MA in Aesthetics but doesn’t get to tell people about it very often.
