Meet Steve

 

Steve Budd came from a background in traditional art, before a desire to bring more life to his work prompted him to make the move to study animation and computer graphics as a way of combining both skill sets. His early animation life began working on various children’s televisions shows, and in advertising for a range of post production studios around Melbourne. Some recent work has been animating on such feature films as TED and Ghost Rider 2 and through his own design studio, on various game, advertising and film projects. Throughout his career he has taught at various animation and gaming schools, and found that nothing is more inspiring or keeps his skills stronger than teaching an art form that he loves.
