Steve Smith is a versatile and hugely experienced director and filmmaker. He graduated with an MA in Animation from the Royal College of Art with the film ‘Last Best Friend’, and was represented for 3 years at Sherbet where he made ‘Eating For Two’ for the Channel 4 AIR scheme. In 2003 he left Sherbet to set up Trunk Animation, which he ran successfully for 6 years, creating commercials, titles, idents, and promos, which led to a British Animation Award in 2008 for Fun Facts and a BAFTA for ‘Newsround: On Poverty’. In 2010 Steve moved again, setting up a new animation studio ‘Beakus’ where he is making his latest short ‘Rest In Pieces’.
