Good news for London - Sarah Smith introduces Locksmith Animation
Good news for animators in the UK! A new studio is coming to town, bringing with it the prospect of jobs, creative success, and - at last - a proper animation studio in London. In this interview a few days ago at awn.com, Locksmith Animation founder and director Sarah Smith talks about her new animation venture, which is backed by London VFX house Double Negative, and supported by entrepreneur Elizabeth Murdoch.
Here at Animation Apprentice we welcome this excellent news - our job is to train our students to be among the best candidates to apply for jobs at Lockmsith when their doors open. We'll be ready when they are.
