Shelley Page is currently International Animation Consultant for several leading animation studios including Aardman Animations (UK), HB Wink (China), and RevLover (Australia) and is based in London.
Shelley has been working in the field of feature animation since 1986.
Her career in animation began when she joined the London studio of legendary animation director Richard Williams from 1982 – which ultimately led to a position as head of backgrounds on the Walt Disney film ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’ (1988).
In 1989 she was hired by Steven Spielberg as one of the original team of artists at the Amblimation Studio in London where she worked on animation feature films until recruited in early 1995 as one of the first team of artists to join Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen’s new studio, DreamWorks.
Since joining DreamWorks Animation as co-head of Artist Development, Shelley has worked in many areas of feature animation production at the studio. She left Dreamworks Animation in late 2016 to take up new career opportunities as a talent consultant.
Shelley’s 36+ feature film credits include: ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’, ‘The Prince Of Egypt’, ‘Shrek’, ‘Madagascar’, ‘Kung Fu Panda’ and ‘How to Train Your Dragon’.
In January 2017 Shelley set up a new consultancy in London as an international animation consultant.
She also regulary teaches classes at many leading animation schools worldwide in her capacities as Visiting Professor and External Examiner.
Shelley is also a regular presenter and member of the awards juries of international animation festivals including: Annecy (France), FMX (Stuttgart), BFX (UK), Anilogue (Hungary), Siggraph (USA and Asia), GAFX (India) and Aniwow! and CICAF (China).
