Martin McNally

Martin McNally has been delivering high quality film, animation and visual arts projects in a community setting for over 5 years and to a wide range of participants.
Martin enjoys working with all members of the community and is passionate about using the Arts as a tool for social change.

As a Fine Art graduate, his practice ranges through painting, sculpture, animation, film and new media. Martin’s adoration for the arts is ever evolving, but his passion for creating animation is one that’s always been at his heart. With broad technical animation skills, he enjoys creating all types of animation, but leans toward the traditional methods, favouring the more hand made, tangible aesthetic.

Martin’s work has been exhibited in Winchester, Birmingham and London. He also worked with Second Home Studio’s on a number of short animated CITV idents that are still used on TV. He states that for him, being artistic is a compulsion; a lifestyle rather than a hobby.
