The world of Simon Pummell is a secret of mine. Whisper it into a tree and cover it with mud for future generations to uncover. There isn't much online to see of his work but the film stills alone will hook you into his abattoire of film manipulation. Recently, he is best known for his collaberation with Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood on his award winning film, Bodysong. Here is an old interview with him on AWN. What I like about his work is that he pushes the boundaries with oblique storytelling that hinges on non-linear structures at times to propel the genre into a realm that most animators shy away from. He is definately worth looking into but as for me I must sleep and dream...of Butcher's and Fallen Angels.
