The School Of Life: What is Literature for? from Marcus Armitage on Vimeo.

A short film made for the School of Life, explaining why on earth we read books and what they could do for us.
It was animated by myself and Ignatz Johnson Higham.
Voice over Alain de Botton
Produced by Mad Adam Productions

I was creative director for this project which also covered three other videos animated by other people.

A little sneak peak of some new cut-out work Ignatz and I are working on. Can’t wait for it to be finished, it’s going to be utterly absurd. Keep an eye out on here and my NEW WEBSITE


My Dad (2014 Trailer) from Marcus Armitage on Vimeo.

My graduation film from the Royal College of Art

Inherited opinions. Inherited isolation.

A short film depicting a Dad’s influence on a young boy’s life. His judgmental character mixed with the boys fondness for his dad prove to be a toxic mix that tears away at a world of opportunity and experiences.

My latest film is getting closer and closer to completion!

Here are a few of the 1000s of frames going into my film.

Make sure you come down to the RCA show from the 18th June.
