Since his time at BU, George has been working on the 52-episode 3D preschool series Pop Paper City, which airs on Channel 5's 'Milkshake!' and is being distributed worldwide by Aardman Animations. The series is produced by LoveLove Films, a Bournemouth-based animation studio.
During his time with Pop Paper City, George has tested himself in a variety of roles. He has worked as a scriptwriter for the series, writing three episodes which have all since aired on Channel 5's Milkshake, in which his Scriptwriting for Film & Television degree was invaluable. He has since shifted into a more production-based role, working as a Studio Manager, and is helping to lead a growing team of production staff, animators, and other 3D artists.
George says: “My degree in producing was vital in giving me the confidence to step into this new challenging, but exciting role.”
