GALLERY 07: D&AD/Campaign Screen - New Directors - Mike Sharpe

A runner for the Paul Weiland Film Company, the determined Sharpe locked himself in his bedroom with his Apple Mac to create this endearing piece entitled Homesick. His dedication is paying off, and last year the 25-year-old scooped the Cartoon Network Animation Award for the film. The jury applauded the work for its characterisation and ability to arouse both humour and empathy in the audience. Sharpe is interested in pursuing a career in motion graphics.
