"Melody" for BBC and "Nissan Robot"

I had a pleasure to work as character animator in Keyframe Studios in London at two projects:

Melody - animation series for BBC CBeeBies.
I did some of the animation in four episodes: "When the Cat's Away", "Flying High", "The Lost Bee" and "Muddy Melody"
- great project for CBeebies targeted to children who can't good see and hear.

Nissan Robot - animated character for the Nissan Innovation Centre
