Director

Anthony Farquhar-Smith

Anthony is known for his storytelling and original animation style.

Whether working with feature film directors like Wes Anderson and Tim Burton, or directing numerous television commercials and programs, stop motion director Anthony is known for his ability to bring inanimate objects to life and to give them personality and feeling.

Anthony worked on Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and was lead animator on Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr Fox. He was brought in to help animate some of the toughest Isle of Dogs scenes including the cult status Sushi scene and the drumming scene.

In his technical approach Anthony uses both traditional stop motion techniques and modern digital tools, but whatever the method his craft always drives the particular story being told.

He has worked internationally in Denmark, Switzerland and the United States as well as for companies around the UK.

Most recently Anthony has begun to produce his own short films. The first of these was the award winning ‘Stick Out,’ which was well received on the festival circuit and featured as a finalist in the Virgin Media Shorts competition. His next film, ‘Drawer.’ is currently in production.
