APEngine spoke to artist Run Wrake about his work.

Run started experimenting with animation whilst studying Graphic Design at Chelsea School Of Art in the mid-eighties, initially as a means to combine images with music.  A Masters degree in Animation at the Royal College Of Art  followed, where he discovered the joy and potential of breaking down sound. He has since worked as a freelance Animation Director and illustrator, working on a wide variety of projects encompassing short film, music promos, television graphics, commercials, live visuals and illustration.

His career highlights include… “my first job, commissioned by an Elvis suited Jonathan Ross to make a title sequence…making Jukebox, my first animate! commission, a two year slog…meeting and working with Howie B, initially on a short film to accompany the release of his album Music For Babies, and subsequently on a series of freeform promos…presenting storyboards to Roy Lichtenstein in his New York studio for U2′s Popmart Tour visuals…and the critical acclaim for Rabbit, a short film completed in 2005.”
