A bit about me ...

Seb Hartzell

Hi there...

I've been working in animation and motion graphics for over 8 years.

I'm a 2D based animator and illustrative designer. I have an all round motion design knowledge and a lot of experience in 2D character rigging and cel animation, which is a passion of mine. I also have a working knowledge of 3D, which adds to the scope of my work.

As a freelancer I've worked for a variety of ad agencies, production companies and start-ups. This work includes explainers, social ads, DOOH, animations for events, apps and for media release. In this time I’ve tackled a multitude of briefs and worked in many different environments. I’ve worked on projects for end clients such as Starbucks, Guide Dogs, The Sunday Times and Boehringer Ingelheim to name a few.

Before jumping into the freelance world I was part of a team of 4 animators and designers at Screencult, a video production company. I acted as lead animator, delegating tasks and providing on-the-job training as appropriate.
