Marc Godfrey Animator at Blue Zoo

Blue Zoo animation
Marc Godfrey is a talented animator who was one of the first students to sign up for the course at Animation Apprentice.

He is also one of the most dedicated, and we are proud that his dedication and commitment to the craft of animation has been recognised by the industry in the form of a job Blue Zoo, now the UK's largest independent TV animation studio.

To see Marc's excellent demo reel, watch the video below. A demo reel is an animator's calling card, their digital shopfront and the key to finding work.  If your demo reel isn't perfect, and completely free of mistakes, studios will not take you seriously.
