Good to see you
They said you gotta have a dream. As an animator, I say you gotta make that Reel.
Wouldn’t have been right to start this off without a cringy, animation-based pun would it?
Moving very swiftly on…
My name is Richard Tuft. I consider myself a storyteller first and foremost. I love telling stories, and love telling stories with great characters even more.
My time is mostly spent doing just that.
- I animate (traditionally and in CGI),
- Write for television and film (and any media in between),
- Create and develop stories by Storyboarding and moving Animatics,
- I also Direct, both personal and professional projects.
Following my passion, I have received prestigious awards from:-
- California Institute of the Arts*
- Walt Disney
- and an IVCA/EVCOM award***
* Whilst studying Character Animation
** Recent BAFTA LA Scholarship
***For Outstanding Game Design and Animation in Digital Media
Over the years I’ve worked with some inspiring people and companies, including the:-
- channel 4
- National Geographic
- Discovery Channel
…and many others.
Inclusive of that, I have worked in a variety of environments – for Film and Television, in Pre-Production and Pitch phase work, Developing concepts and ideas, and in the Digital & Multi-Media arena – creating engaging content for web, marketing and even the occasional online Game.

I’m currently based in Los Angeles, but fleet back and forth between my native UK often.
It’s good to talk Film and Art. Get in touch and let’s start something…
