Brian Little

Brian Little Brian's first work as a graphic designer was with the BBC where he produced many and varied title sequences and inserts for TV, making the Children's Department his speciality. He progressed to work as Assistant Producer/Director, on programmes such including Play School, Eureka!, Caterpillar Trail and Jigsaw.

Brian went on to work as a Director at Cosgrove Hall Productions, where during his ten years, he worked on The Wind in the Willows, Creepy Crawlies, Noddy's Toyland Adventures and Oakie Doke! and four 30-minute episodes of the BAFTA nominated Brambly Hedge. He also directed several pilot films, including Odysseus-The Legend which incorporated animated and CGI elements.

In 1998, alongside colleagues Jackie Cockle and Joe Dembinski, Brian formed HOT Animation. During the first year, Brian directed further episodes of Brambly Hedge, whilst the studio developed the Bob the Builder series. Brian went on to help develop and direct the pre-school series Rubbadubbers, before joining the team on 'Bob'.

Another ten years on and Brian has set Reema-Leema with former-HOT colleague Chris Sievey. Their first project - aimed at an older audience - is "FRANKSWORLD", a model animated series - (incorporating some live action) - based on the cult entertainer Frank Sidebottom. The pilot episode has been greeted with great enthusiasm by those who have seen it, so hopes are high at Reema-Leema for an early commission, and hopefully, another ten great years of model animation!
