Passion Pictures Melbourne Announces Two Exciting New Additions to Their Roster of Talent

Passion Pictures Melbourne has announced two exciting new additions to its roster of talent.

Jimmy Kiddell, master of photoreal character animation, joins Passion Pictures Melbourne with a raft of award-winning commercial work under his belt.

Having cut his teeth on films such as The Mummy Returns, Harry Potter and A Knight's Tale, Kiddell has collaborated on spots for Guiness, Audi, and Johnnie Walker. His film for Netto, 'The Easter Surprise', featuring CG characters rendered inside gorgeous real world sets, recently won Gold at the Eurobest Awards.

Says Katie Mackin, managing director, Passion Pictures Melbourne: "It's great to offer two such unique, yet uniformly excellent talents locally; Jimmy brings a wealth of experience, and Megacomputeur, a fresh perspective. We're very excited to introduce them to the APAC region."
