Colleagues who wrote Recommendations
David Simmons knowledge Management (LEGO)
I worked with Gill in 2003 at LEGO where he was an animator for their instructions division. I saw firsthand how he used an older, out-of-date animation software tool and convinced it to do things that later-version software could do. His artistic talent, sense-of-humor, and creative drives make him someone I could work with again.
Troy Mashburn Lead combat Designer (Rockstar Vienna)
It is my pleasure to give a recommendation to Gill. I worked closely with Gill at Rockstar Vienna. We were part of a team developing the core AI and various behaviors. The team was composed of 2 designers a programmer and Gill, who created the animations.
Gill supported the team updating and creating new animations as needed. He always kept a positive attitude and delivered quality work on time. Gill would be an asset to any project.
Michael Cawood Animator Filmmaker (Glasgow Animation)
Gill is the kind of person that can pull a team together. He’s kind, open minded, funny, friendly and focused on channeling people’s best efforts into something worthwhile. He’s been a good friend to everyone that needed it, but on top of all this he’s a good animator too and brings his wealth of experience to the task at hand everyday. It has been a pleasure working with him and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
Andrew Doyle 3d Animator (Glasgow Animation)
When Gill arrived at Glasgow Animation he instantly became popular with all the crew. He's a very easy going guy and always a good guy to keep morale high. For a period before i left Glasgow Animation Gill became Animation supervisor and handled this role very well. He insured everything was completed in full and on time and made sure that we had fun doing it,which is highly important in this industry . I would recommend him every time for any position as i feel he has the character to do well in whatever role he might be given.
Rune Tyroll Animation Supervisor (Deadline Games)
Gill is a professional and very skilled animator with great passion for all areas of the animation industry. He has been an enormous pleasure to work with and is always in a great mood that rubs of on everyone else.
I am going to miss working with him and hope that we get another chance in the future.
I can highly recommend Gill to any that needs a great animator.
Søren LundSenior Producer (Deadline Games)
If there is one word the probably best describes Gill it has to be "team player". His enthusiasm, professionalism and general care for his work and colleagues made him an invaluable and loved member of Deadline's talented staff. Gill was never afraid to lend a helping hand or take on a task and was always inquisitive and genuinely cared about the quality of his work and what it did to the quality of others work. Truly a great colleague and a gifted animator.
