Creative Lives — Ifor Ashton, producer at animation studio Moth

Posted 20 March 2017 Interview by Laura Snoad

Whether the team is creating a heart-melting modern romance for The New York Times or hard-hitting films for environmental think tank Global Canopy Programme, Ifor will follow an animation project from concept right through to delivery. Choreographing the in-house team, freelancers and clients means that he’s glued to a computer pretty much all day, but his excitement for realising a vision means he’s invested in Moth for the long haul.
