An animation auteur is someone instantly recognisable by his or her work. For example you can sit down and watch the corpse bride, knowing absolutely nothing about it and with in minutes you will be able to say “this is a Tim Burton film”.

Another Auteur is Nick Park. Working at Aardman in bristol, he is the mind behind Wallace and Gromit.

His style of animation is immediately recognisable. Chicken Run, Creature Comforts and Wallace and Gromit all share a certain something, and the audience always know that Park is behind them.

He studied Communication Arts at sheffield Polymetric (now Sheffield Hallam) and later at the Nation Film and Television School, studying Communication Arts.
