Hello, my name is Duncan Catterall. I’ve been working as professional filmmaker and animator since 2008. I’ve been lucky to work across a spectrum of incredible projects in my time, from feature films and commercials to documentaries and digital. I’m an advanced level After Effects animator, working in everything from compositing and visual effects to motion graphics and character animation.
I’ve built a good reputation being about to take creative ideas use my technical knowledge, including of emerging technologies, and help my clients get the best and sometimes cutting edge result they need. As well as being a safe pair of hands with After Effects, I’ve also been able to lead and mentor other animators as and when projects have required it, as well as giving art direction that matches the tone of a piece.
Outside of my animation work I’ve also been a camera op, director and drone pilot and these experiences have allowed me to appreciate interactions with other producers and creators, where often I’m working towards the post production end of a project.
Please note, as of November 2022, I am no longer freelance but continue to work making animations, motion graphics and films for TeacherActive. I will do limited projects of my choosing externally in support of my charity Help Close By. In the interest of privacy my contact page has been removed.
