We are delighted to welcome Lewis Furber to the team as an illustrator and character animator. Find our more about him below:  

As long as I can remember, drawing has always been my top skill, creating comics in school and drawing people as cartoons. Over the years my skills have improved,  learning new techniques and developing my style.

When I was 13, I was introduced to an after school animation club and just a few weeks later, I was invited to join a two-week course with the British Film institute where I joined a team of people over the West Midlands to film and animate an award-nominated documentary. During this time, the world of film and creating content became a clear favourite and I wanted to do it more and more. 

After leaving school, I studied animation at Shrewsbury College, and then at Bristol University as well as doing some freelance work, including being a background artist for a web series on YouTube which premiered to a large crowd in London. 

Graduating in 2019, I did some part time work before, out of the blue, I was contacted by 7video and I cannot wait to see what the future brings. 

Read a few getting to know me q&as below and please contact me if you need help with any of your projects.

Question time

What brought you to 7video?

Since graduating from university, I have been producing small amounts of freelance artwork whilst doing a part time job at a bar. Out of the blue, Pete Sims contacted me via social media offering me an opportunity to work at 7Video, I took this opportunity, now being more creative than ever!

What are your interests outside work?

My interests are mainly the same outside of work! Animating and drawing! 

The off chance that i’m not creating… something random will come about. Not too long ago I tried a salsa class, yes different but it was good fun! Also improv class was interesting – ended up pretending to be a dinosaur owning a farm, well something along those lines!

What is your favourite film?

In a way I don’t really have a favourite film. More of a director enthusiast. My top favourite directors are; Stanley Kubrick for his use of single point perspective. Quentin Tarantino for his outrageous movies and Wes Anderson for a similar use of film as Stanley Kubrick, but with animation and film combined.

Who would you most like to meet?

I’d like to meet Jim Carrey, so I could have a conversation with him about his mindfulness and how he has ventured through his life of comedy and art.
