Director's biography

Thomas Carey, a UK/US dual citizen was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey in 1999. He has loved the art form of stop-motion animation ever since he was 10 years old, growing up with idols such as Wallace and Gromit, Coraline and, a personal favourite, Fifi and the Flower Tots! Thomas has always had great enthusiasm for musical theatre and vocal performance, and so is excited to be debuting HIDING; a stop-motion/CG hybrid short film based around a song (written by Scott Alan) which he performs himself.
