Matthew Robins is a multidisciplinary artist and musician from the West Country. He runs an independent arts studio in London, creating bespoke animations for the music, theatre and film industries, as well as touring with his own music-based live animation show.
Matthew's films are hand-made stop-motion animations, mostly working with cut-out paper, drawing, cardboard, and papier-mache. Commissioned work is developed through conversations and usually takes shape over a couple of months.
If you like my work and would like to chat about a project please get in touch.
Most recent animation projects include creating an adaptation of "La Boheme" for Opera North and the official music video for Slade's "Merry Xmas Everybody".
Previously Matthew has made stop-motion films for musicians and artists including Cat Stevens, Passenger, Tori Amos (The Light Princess), Phil Collins (Tomorrow is Always Too Long), Sivu, and Led Bib. An installation of his animations and mechanical puppet shows are on permanent display in the Science Museum in London. Matthew has performed at the Tate and the V&A, and has made theatre shows for The Barbican Theatre, The National Theatre, and directed and designed an adaption of Ted Hughes story "The Iron Man" for the Unicorn Theatre in London Bridge, as well as co-creating the musical "Drip" with the playwright, Tom Wells.
