Sam Fell

In 1990, Sam Fell gained a first class degree in Fine Art at Nottingham University. At the end of the course, he won a place on the Channel 4 MOMI program, which was set up to enable young talent to develop and produce new animation.

The program resulted in Fell directing a short film for Channel 4 television called The Big Cheese, which was produced at 3 Peach Animation in London. Also during this period, he worked as a freelance animator in the UK at Aardman Animations, 3 Peach, Redwing, Filmfair, and the BBC. While at Aardman, Fell's working relationship with Peter Lord resulted in him working as a key animator on Wat's Pig, Lord's Academy AwardÂ-nominated short film.

In 1996, Fell signed on as a director of commercials at Aardman. During this time, as he continued making short films and directing commercials, Fell began to develop projects that combined CG technology and clay animation. Flushed Away is his first feature film.
