Tiger Aspect’s Tim Searle takes us through the twists and turns of his career in UK comedy animation, from Absolutely to Mr Bean, with Have I Got News For You, Two Fat Ladies, I Am Not An Animal, 2DTV, Viz, Horrible Histories and many others along the way. With clips, a slideshow and hopefully a few laughs!

Tim’s career in animation began some 25 years ago when he set up Triffic Films within months of leaving college with business advice and support from The Prince’s Youth Business Trust. Triffic produced animation and graphics for a wide range of television comedy shows including: Absolutely, Father Ted, Harry Enfield’s Television Programme, Paramount City, Murder Most Horrid and Have I Got News For You.   The company’s graphics, titles and animations have also been prominent in, for example, Saturday Live, Samson Superslug, Two Fat Ladies, Fist of Fun and The Catherine Tate Show. Triffic moved into narrative comedy in 1999 with The Outlaw and Rolfs Animal Hairdressers for Channel 4 (first Celaction production). 2DTV was the hugely popular topical animated sketch show that ran for five series on ITV, which in 2002 lead to making the promo for George Michael’s controversial Shoot the Dog.

Tim is now a board member of Animation UK the group that successfully lobbied government for the UK tax break and a member of the Skillset Animation Group.
