Matt Cochrane - Studio Director

Co-founder and Studio Director Matt is a man of many hats; literally and figuratively. From enduring Excel to living and breathing all things motion, he helps keep the Motel ship on course and smooth sailing.

Leigh Harrison - Creative Director

Co-founder and Creative Director Leigh has a beady eye for detail. He brings that sprinkle of creative magic to our animations so they always exceed the brief and we create something completely unique.

Amy Garrod - Producer

Plate-spinner in chief, Amy makes sure that each project runs without a hitch. She's on hand to guide you through the process and loves getting to the bottom of a problem so we can make great work that everyone can be proud of.

Tom Gamble - Illustrator/Animator

Tom is a keyframe maestro, composing comical characters and beautiful films that make a difference. He's always adding exciting new techniques and plug-ins to the mix so our animations have bags of personality.

Kris Zhekov - Junior Animator

With a flair for crafting expressive cel animation and eloquent sketch illustrations, Kris brings panache to style frames and storyboards alike. King of style, he rules with a pencil (well, a stylus).

This is absolutely brilliant! It has been really good to work with you, you have had a good understanding of our requirements and you have been able to respond to feedback in a constructive and timely way. I can't wait to get sharing.
