Dan Fox, Sean Fox
Dan has been an animator since 2007, working in motion-graphics first, working on TVC’s and music videos, before moving across into video-game animation, where the games he’s worked on have been singled out during Apple keynote speeches (‘Overland’) and been nominated for BAFTA Games Awards (‘NeoCab’). His first love has always been film and he hopes to bring more attention to disabled filmmakers and their challenges as he uses this film to pursue further filmmaking projects of all kinds.
