Film and animation production company Not To Scale has signed stop-motion director Anthony Farquhar-Smith, who will work across all of their studios in London, New York and Amsterdam.
In addition to working with feature film directors like Wes Anderson on Fantastic Mr. Fox and Tim Burton on Corpse Bride, Farquhar-Smith has directed TV commercials in the UK and internationally.
Before joining Not To Scale, Farquhar-Smith worked with clients such as Kellogg’s, HSBC, Cadbury, Samsung and Audi. A two-year stint working in the industry in Los Angeles also led to commercials for Barbie, Intel, Xbox and Alamo. He is currently working on a short film called Drawer. He also lectures at several animation courses around the country.
“We’ve been looking for a stop-frame director of Anthony’s experience and caliber for some time,” says Dan O’Rourke, founder and chief executive producer at Not To Scale. “We were delighted to meet him and sign him onto our roster and even more delighted to get him working with St Luke’s and Very in his first week.”
