A 21-year-old animator who has produced work for Manchester City, the BBC and Gucci has secured investment enabling him to launch his own Studio.

Ben Wild Studios has been co-founded by Wild and local investor and businessman Andrew Morgan following a successful project they worked on together in October 2019.

Wild, who is self-taught, left school at 15 and went on to land a job with a film studio working as an on-site storyboard artist. Since then he has worked with a number of blue-chip companies as an animator. 

Morgan, the co-founder of a Cheshire-based financial planning business, took the decision to invest in the Sale-based Studios following a brief period working with the animator.

He said: “Ben is a unique talent and working with him has been incredible. Ben is one of the nicest, most hard-working people I have met and his talent excites me. By utilising my business experience and acumen, I truly believe that Ben Wild Studios will be an international success story."

Wild added: “I can't believe the reaction we’ve had since launching. The clients that we are attracting are giving us the most amazing briefs and opportunities and we’re so excited to see what the future holds for Ben Wild Studios.”

Ben Wild Studios offers bespoke animation, illustrations and after-effects.
