Jellyfish was founded in 2001 and since then has grown into one of the leading boutique visual effects and animation houses in London, with over 100 employees.
We're thrilled to see our graduates winning positions at leading animation and VFX houses like Jellyfish. Jellyfish does advertising, television and film work in both London and New York, and have worked on both TV animated series as well as feature films.
Henry will start out in the 3D Layout department, an excellent place to polish his skills in cinematography and visual story telling, before moving on to the animation department.
Henry got the job after doing a 24 animation test at home, which he described as "pretty full on...I had to stay up until four in the morning to get it done on time".
So congratulations to Henry on landing that crucial first job - always the toughest part of a career in creative media. We look forward to seeing some of the projects that he will work on over the coming years. His first show at Jellyfish will be this one below - Meet The Floogals:
