BAFTA & Emmy-nominated Director Steve Small is a master craftsman & artist. His work has varied from working on Disney features to designing and directing shorts, TV series, and commercials. Steve has directed and animated a formidable slate of commercials at AKA, including spots for TELE2, NICKTOONS, ORANGE, TSB, ADMIRAL and the utterly charming SING UP.
More recently, Steve has been developing animation for more adult themes, beginning with a series of BAFTA-nominated animated sequences for the BBC Netflix drama BLACK EARTH RISING and moving onto to an Emmy Nominated title sequence for Ridley Scott’s Sci-fi series RAISED BY WOLVES, and a title sequence and inserts for Jake Scott’s documentary KIPCHOGE.
In Steve’s alternate universe, he has also embarked on a career of illustrating and writing for children’s picture books. The first book, which Steve illustrated, ‘I’M STICKING WITH YOU,’ was nominated for a Nibbie, a book Oscar, and the Klaus Flugge award, winning a Silver at the Junior design awards and an honorary mention at the Ezra Keats awards. Steve has followed this up with THE DUCK WHO DIDN’T LIKE WATER, which he both wrote & illustrated. Steve lives in London, and when he’s not painting and drawing, you’ll likely find him feeding the crows on Blackheath Common.
