Justin Carrington

Motion Graphics Producer

Justin always thought he’d be a Graphic Designer until he was introduced to a little software package called After Effects. From then on his passion was to make images and text come alive by movement. P.S.R.T all took on new meanings and who doesn’t like a null object with keyframed velocity.

Since then he’s worked with clients both here and abroad. Always playing and learning as he goes.

He loves motion graphics. He also loves Pancakes and coffee.
But, mainly Motion Graphics.

With a Master’s degree in Film and TV Production and experience on a range of productions, Dan joined TINKER TAYLOR to put his skills to use in making great video content.

Dan likes pale ale, film noir and travelling.

Dan dislikes slow walkers and people who take the lower offer on The Chase.

Rob enjoys Game of Thrones (Who doesn’t?) Breaking Bad and also has a soft spot for the minions in Despicable Me…
