Kevin at London Animation Club back in 2012

I am delighted to welcome London-based and internationally-lauded animator Kevin Baldwin as our guest at our September event. I first met Kevin on the plane back from Animafest Zagreb in 2006, having been dazzled by his short film An Unaccompanied Lady. He has visited us at Animation Club before, but this will be his first proper retrospective. Can’t wait.

Kevin’s Bio
Born in the mean streets of Bermondsey, South East London and now a veteran of 35 years in the animation world, Kevin Baldwin started his career at the studios of Bob Godfrey. His first job was the children’s series Henry’s Cat. Written by Stan Hayward this went on to become a cult success winning a BAFTA and a Cable TV award in the process.

In 1993 a joint venture with Bob resulted in the short film ‘Small Talk’. This was to receive a Best Animated Short Academy Award nomination the following year.

Other work involving short films includes Know Your Europeans for producer John Halas, the series Monkey Dust for Talkback Thames and pet project The Loser’s Club.

Recent collaboration with actor/comedian Graham Fellows led to a promotional film for a projected series based on his character John Shuttleworth. This went out with his 2006 Fawn Again tour plus a short film about Oliver Cromwell called Oliver Cromwell’s Head in 2010.
