Hull animation graduate Matthew Sleaford has gone straight from university to a job with a production company.


Treehouse Productions spotted Matthew’s talent and offered him a job as an assistant director as soon as he finished his Animation degree at the Hull School of Art & Design.


Matthew (22) from St Albans is delighted to be working for the company, which is based where he grew up. Treehouse is a small production company with a wide large range of clients including Children’s ITV (CITV).


He started work for the company in June and is thoroughly enjoying his new role. “It’s great, I’m doing something that I really enjoy,” he said. “It all happened so quickly - we had our final degree shows on the Friday and I started work the following week.”


Matthew graduates in Hull at the City Hall on Thursday 26th July at 11:30am.
