The Johnny Luu

2D/3D Animation, Illustration, TV/Film/Video

Who I am

I'm a freelance animator and After Effects artist based in Brighton.

People know me as Johnny Luu, but there are a few Johnny Luu's in the world, so way back when I signed up to google's newfangled email service, I chose 'thejohnnluu' as my username. 'The' is actually my first name. It's on my passport.

I have a traditional art based background but my most accomplished skills are in After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. As the world of OLA has evolved I have transitioned my Flash Design skills into creating banners using Google Web Designer and Sizmek Ad Builder.

What I do

I do motion graphics, animation, compositing, illustration and asset creation. I juggle being a freelance creative art-monkey with directing and producing jobs from beginning to end. In whatever capacity, I just love working on making things look cool and move beautifully.

Who I do it for

After graduating from a BA (Hons) Animation course at the University of Wales, Newport in 2006 I promptly moved to London to begin my freelancing career. I have been freelancing ever since. I have been fortunate enough to work on a variety of different projects from online advertising banners and internal corporate films to television commercials and broadcast children's entertainment programmes. I have worked, under direction, at lots of different agencies and studios as well as taken on projects directly.

Here's a list of the people and places I have either done work with or for:

AMVBBDO, Agency Republic, BAFTA, Baileys Global, Barclays, BlackBerry, Blac Ionica, CBBC, cbeebies, Crayon, Dare, errorware, FigTree Network, Frukt music, Hutchinson 3, IMAGINTAION Ltd., ITV, Jaguar Cars, Meme Digital, Microsoft, Nickelodeon, Penny Royal Films, Premier Inn, Sainsbury's, Sky, WCRS, W+K, Tandem Films, Vodafone, Xbox.
