Neil Pymer

A director working in film, animation & interactive.
I'm a freelance director who primarily works in the wonderfully diverse and innovative interactive department at Aardman. I have an interest in film, interactive design and animation and specialise in projects that are difficult to achieve, probably haven't been attempted before, that educate, bring about change and have strong narratives and characters at their heart... ideally all of the above!
If you’re one for facts and figures; I've recently worked on BBC’s Escargot Escape Artistes which was nominated for a Children’s BAFTA, Music Inc for UK Music/IPO which achieved over 23,000 hours of game play in its first day, Saptan Stories for the British Council which was engaged by over 1 million people, iReporter for BBC News which teaches young adults to navigate the murky waters of fake news and I've just directed two music videos for the incredible band Ferris & Sylvester.
I also talk at festivals and run workshops for students and professionals alike at Aardman Academy, D&AD, BFI, NME Lifehacks and the Princes Trust by inspiring them to fail fast, think like children and to get their hands dirty.
