Dan Lane

With a solid background in traditional 2D, hand-drawn animation, Dan’s early creations included everything from good old inbetweening, to a training CD for car mechanics, through to storyboarding the feature film Chicken Run.

Fuelled by an invaluable full-time stint in the CG department at AardmanAnimations– working on award-winning productions such as The Presentators, Dan was nominated for the BBC Talent Award 2005 and the B+ Young Animator of the Year 2003, Dan’s trademark blend of humour, quirkiness, inspiration and professionalism consistently garners critical acclaim, especially for his hilarious short film Two Fellas, selected by SE3D; a scheme run by the Watershed, Alias and HP Labs, the film was nominated for the Norman McLaren Award at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 2005.

After a stint back at Aardman as a Senior in both the Previs and then CG Animation deparments on "The Pirates!", he is currently an Animator on Warner Bros/Animal Logic's "Lego The Movie" in Sydney, Australia.
