Working Lives: Animation Supervisor Catherine Mullan

She has worked on every­thing from Dinotopia to Disney’s live-action Dumbo to a slow-motion Jack Russell in the new Flash movie. She is head of animation at the visual effects studio One of Us.

What does the job involve?

It involves supervising the animation across a visual effects project, which can be anything from a simple car or plane to something more complex, such as a hero character or a creature. A supervisor works closely with the animation team, production, the visual effects (VFX) supervisor and the director.
