Will PatonAnimation Graduate William Paton obtains Character Animatior position at Huhu Studio.

William’s hard work and study paid off early on the course when he was selected for our internship program to work at Auckland animation studio Yukfoo. He completed his studies on the job, and later became a lead 3D Artist at the studio. William has since been back to regularly visit South Seas including to talk with current students about the rewards and challenges of working in the animation industry, and to provide inspiration for our students to pursue their goals. William recently took part in a project we undertook to interview people working in the games and animation industry.

You can see some snippets of our interview with William on the clip Tips for Getting Into the Games Industry. After several years working with Yukfoo as a Lead 3D Generalist, William left to pursue his passion for character animation by finding a position that allowed him to focus solely on this are. After a very short but well deserved break William found work as a character animator at Huhu Studio.
