Matilda Tristram

Matilda is an experienced tutor and author of comics and children's books. She also writes children's TV, with credits including episodes of Sarah and Duck, Dipdap and The Adventures of Abney and Teal for cBeebies. She studied animation at the Royal College of Art and teaches animation at Kingston University and Camberwell College of Art.

I hope my workshops prove that animation is not as difficult as it might seem. Anything can be brought to life and animated, the fun part is working out how.

People, objects and conversations inspire my work. I like making jokes.
