Jonathan Victory talked to Mark Ardington, who has over 17 years experience as an Animator, Rigger / TD, Animation Director and VFX Supervisor on many award-winning CGI commercials, TV series and films.
He joined Double Negative in 2013 as CG Lead and has subsequently lent his expert artistry to films including Paddington, Exodus: Gods & Kings, Antman, Spectre and Ex Machina, for which Mark built the rigging which allowed CG and performance to meld to such mesmeric perfection in the creation of Ava. Mark is currently working on Tim Burton’s next movie, the fantastical Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
