Oliver Howard-Smith

Oliver Howard-Smith is an Auckland-based animator and illustrator who specializes in 2D animation and storyboarding.

Oliver has been creating art since he was a child, but only decided to pursue it as a career in recent years due to being inspired by the media that he watched, which includes shows like ‘Cowboy Bebop’ and ‘Adventure Time’.

Oliver’s showreel project is to explore different styles of movement with animated characters. Oliver aspires to be prevalent within the creative industry, hoping to advance far enough to direct his own films or shows, but for now, he wishes to intern for Frederator or Sunrise in the future.

Oliver was part of the production team for the short film “Up the ANTe” which you can see in the first link below.
