Capability Statement

Rick Tinschert has over 35 years of senior illustration and animation experience in Film and Television and approximately 8 years in the gaming industry. I am renowned and highly respected artist and animation specialist. I am an incredibly knowledgeable and highly skilled 2D and 3D animation, concept designer, character designer, and director.

I began my career as a traditional animator (individually hand drawn animation cells) in the Film and Television industry, then after over twenty years of working with industry leaders such as Disney, Hanna Barbera, Yoram Gross Productions amongst others, shifted his focus into the gaming industry starting as Senior Animator for Aristocrat Technologies Australia. Whilst there, I designed and developed whole artistic concepts from the illustrations to include all animation work from start of project to completion, inclusive of all relevant game reels for several highly successful titles. From Aristocrat, I moved on to NextGenGaming and in a senior animation role he designed some of the top performing online games for the European markets.

My strong animation and organisation skills allow me to produce a high standard of animation as well as the ability to lead a project.

And mentor junior artists and animators
