Feeling Animated! Careers in the Animation Industry

Feeling Animated!

For our most recent Net School careers talk, we were lucky enough to be joined by guest speaker Phil Chalk, for a captivating insight into his animation company, Factory. Phil has combined his engineering background and creative flair in the production of an impressive portfolio of animations, including BAFTA and other award winners.  Many of these we discovered were known and loved among Net School students who were quite star struck to be meeting the brains and creative genius behind such classics as the revitalised 'Clangers', Raa Raa The Noisy Lion, Roary the Racing Car and Newzoids, amongst many other creations! Thank you so much Phil, we feel genuinely privileged to have had this opportunity. 

You can find out more and see some of Factory’s dazzling work at www.factorycreate.com.  A recording of the session is available on electa for Net School students to revisit and enjoy.


Could you be our next guest speaker?

If you or someone you know would be prepared to come and talk to us to share their insights into a specific career, please get in touch with Mrs Bullock at pastoral@net-school.co.uk or (for Net School families) via the Study Skills page on Powerschool.
