Darren Keating


My career in animation spans 23 years. Over that time I have developed a broad base of skills that covers varied departments in the animation field including Art Direction, Concept design (sets, characters, props), Storyboarding, FX animation and script revision, the bulk of my work relying on advanced illustration and drawing skills, particularly specialising in an advanced level of photoshop. Not only has my Art and Animation strengthened over this period but also my managerial capabilities in leading a team, being a team player and an instinct for problem solving/trouble shooting.
