About

Ole

Born in northern Germany, my family moved to Africa when I was 4. With a background in Fine Arts I was drawn to visual effects in England in 1987 but then moved into films, working in various departments including set dressing and props.

In 1991, I discovered computer graphics and after a course in Softimage 3D in Montreal, I was hooked. Since then, I’ve followed a convoluted CG thread which has taken me from Germany to the UK, Lebanon, the United States and Australia. On this journey, I’ve been involved in a varied range of projects in industries that include feature films, documentaries, commercials, corporate, stock footage, explainers and educational (my favourite).

Over the years I have developed a diverse network of talented freelancers – illustrators, animators, visual effects artists and script writers. These are the people who come onboard when the job calls for flavours that are not available in my digital spice drawer.

Working as a self-employed animator allows me the freedom to utilise my talents more fully. I enjoy leading teams of people, overseeing the direction of various projects and of course being able to dictate my working hours so as to keep a healthy work/life balance.

I’ve been a Mac boy since 1995 and currently run with a 2013 Mac Pro and a Mac Studio M1 Ultra. Hergé and Chris Ware make me drool, music greases the wheels, reading is the relish and my family keeps me sane. I love what I do and provided it leaves time for family and reading I’ll probably be mid-click when I pop my clogs.
