Brendan is currently a lecturer in animation at The University of Dundee. After studying the subject in his native Scotland, Brendan has worked around the world, switching between animated features and Visual Effects. Some of his film credits include four of the Harry Potter films, Hellboy 2, John Carter, Legend of The Guardians, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, The Amazing Spider-Man and more recently Pacific Rim and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. The theme of flight has run throughout his career, having brought to life various birds, pixies, dragons, a Hippogryph and giant flying kaju. This, along with a personal interest, has led to a deep understanding of flight and how to recreate it in animation.
