Professional Title: Animation Director, Co-Founder of Hidden Hand Studios



Ross Lelliott is a Director of the Hidden Hands studio and Co-owner. I am a traditional artist at heart, with an unwavering love for 2D animation and cartoons. Born in Botswana, I moved to Jhb when I was young. Started drawing from a young age and eventually got into Wits Art School where I completed a Fine Arts Degree before I started learning animation. Did a Masters course in 3D animation at Wits but swiftly moved to 2D upon completion.

Shortly after finishing school we founded our company but due to lack of experience we went and got jobs in the industry. Worked at Minds Eye for a number of years where I got invaluable experience. Reformed my company in the recent years and have been working here ever since. 

I am lucky enough to work on a number of international shows including Primal, Moosebox and FisForFamily to name a few.
