Early life[edit | hide all | hide | edit source]

Born in Wells, Somerset in 1976, Daffy was educated at Poynton High School in Cheshire. He then studied at Manchester Metropolitan University and C.D.I.S., Vancouver.[1]

Career[edit | hide | edit source]

After leaving C.D.I.S. in 1996 he joined Framestore as a Junior Animator. By the time he left the company in 2004 he was Head of 3D Commercials.[2] [3] During his time at Framestore he worked on many award-winning projects. These included the BBC series Walking With Dinosaurs in 1999, the Levi’s Odyssey commercial in 2002, and two James Bond title sequences.[4] The final project whilst employed by Framestore was the CGI supervision of a bat sequence for the film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

In 2004 he set up his own company, The House of Curves which enabled him to follow his interests in live visuals and music videos and to undertake freelance work around the world.[5] His work included VFX projects such as Soulwax Machine[6] and the opening sequence for The Inbetweeners Movie[7] as well as directing the music video Do It Again for The Ting Tings and the aquatic themed, multi screened fashion show he designed for Kim Jones and Louis Vuitton.[8]

In 2015 he founded Daffy London to pursue directing full-time.[9] His recent work includes the visual effects for the Bafta nominated short film The Three Brothers.[10]

In addition to his film making he is currently creative director of the Tom of Finland Foundation. [11]
