Storyboard and concept development for the award-winning film Uki, funded by the BFI and BBC. 

Uki is a stop-motion animated short, telling the tale of a lonely Inuit who struggles to survive after an oil tanker leaks off the coast of Alaska, killing all the wildlife in the area, leaving him with only his dog for company. It’s a dark comedy about companionship, loneliness and pollution.

The film premiered to a sold-out screening at the BFI Southbank and received a BBC Broadcast on BBC Four following a documentary exploring the best of British animation. The film was also made available on the BFI Player and BBC iPlayer.
