Animation Production Team

TK Karski - Head Animator

TK – or Theo – is the head animator for Vmation and is always looking for an excuse to order bubble tea. His prime skillset lies in being a jack of all trades, conjuring creative frameworks and collaborating with clients to make engaging, brand compliant content. Give him a brief and some parameters and he’ll make it work! If it’s a bit silly – even better. Primarily, he enjoys digital illustration, with a focus on storytelling. His favourite films outside of horror flicks are The Mummy (1999) and Pacific Rim.

Natasha Jenner - Animator

Natasha doesn’t take herself too seriously and finds the fun in everything. She is the ultimate team player and loves to help others on their projects – or just bake cookies for sharing in the office. This flexibility permeates her creative style with a wide range of styling in her designs. She loves to learn new things, whether this is new workflows or new mediums. Her favourite films are The Twilight Saga.

Aidan Solly - Animator

Aidan is a highly adaptable artist, specializing in digital illustration, animation and 3D. He loves new challenges and is adept at finding new ways to create engaging content. Producing an end result that communicates a brief clearly and effectively is one of his greatest satisfactions, no matter the medium.
