FRAMESTORE’S MIKE EAMES ON HOW TO GET A JOB IN ANIMATION

VFX Voice Magazine: Mike Eames is Framestore’s Global Director of Animation. He started out in 2D animation before heading to ILM to work on films including The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Moving to Framestore in 2000, he was the animation supervisor on the celebrated TV series Dinotopia. His long history of credits at Framestore and other studios also include several Harry Potter and Narnia films, The Golden Compass, Children of Men and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

With the rise of the London VFX scene, and with many studios finding new locations to set up, we caught up with Eames at Framestore in the UK capital to find out his thoughts on animation there and in the industry in general, and about getting a job in the field.
