Dan Richards: Stop-motion Director

Dan 2

Dan Richards, A+C Studios’ stop-motion animation director was 12 years old when he made his first stop motion animation.

Little more than a decade later, he graduated from the prestigious Bristol School of Animation, going straight to work at Aardman Animations on the animated film Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. After the film wrapped, Dan decided to set up on his own. A+C Studios was born! Dan still works closely on every project; leading the storytelling process from conception, scripting and storyboarding, model making through to animation and of course to the final cut.

Dan has a real passion for hand craft and a sharp eye for detail, which can be seen throughout his work. Dan’s reputation for pushing the boundaries of stop motion and experimenting with new techniques and ideas gives A+C Studios’ clients and their audiences something new and unique. This is what makes him the animation director he is.
