Basil Baradaran is a freelance animator, illustrator and writer. He has written shorts - both live action and animation, animated on various projects including online videos, and documentaries, and has filmed music videos. His latest project was a short comedy film titled Eat-Me-Not. He unfortunately had to act in a small part, which may have ruined it slightly.
His multi-disciplinary approach to films has made him proficient in 3D Studio Max, Autodesk Maya, Adobe After Effects, and Photoshop - the latter which he frequently uses to draw and paint, and also picture how he would look with different coloured hair.
Having grown up in England, France and New Zealand (and having somehow found his way back to London), he has become very adept at adapting to new situations and working with impromptu teams. Occasionally he gets his currencies confused. His jet-setting ways have convinced him to move to Hong Kong one day and make the greatest Hong Kong crime thriller.
In his spare time, he watches a lot of foreign cinema.
