Peter Lord returns to Dingle

Animation Dingle 2020 are delighted to announce the return of Peter Lord to our Festival in March 2020.

Peter Lord is Co-Founder and Creative Director of Aardman Animations, which he co-founded with David Sproxton in 1972. Their breakthrough success was with the clay character Morph, who later starred in his own series The Amazing Adventures of Morph.

Peter first came to Animation Dingle in March 2018 where he was an incredible guest, giving of his time to chat to students, creating a Morph character for our fundraiser Art Auction event, and giving an inspiring keynote speech – which of course was hugely ‘animated’.

Animation Dingle are thrilled to welcome him back where Lord will introduce his new upcoming Morph project.
