Sam Batty

Animator, Wētā Workshop

Despite never finishing, ‘The Illusion of Life’ … Sam has had an illustrious career in animation. As a Game Animator for Wētā Workshop, he loves to see his creations spring to life. But he’s also a little lazy. So, Sam is constantly looking for ways to reach his goals more efficiently. This involves looking at new workflows and improving procedural techniques to author a character’s performance. As an experienced speaker, Sam is passionate about sharing his innate knowledge with his peers and those burgeoning on their animation careers.
