J’can driving animation in St Vincent and the Grenadines

He has had many ups and downs, heard a lot of nos and had more doors closed in his face than he can count. But with a passion for animation and moulding young minds, David Martin is now a leader in the animation industry in the region.

Having studied communications at Northern Caribbean University and subsequently worked as a video editor and motion graphics artist at the NCU Media Group, Martin transitioned fully into animation when he was employed to teach digital animation at the HEART Trust Southwest TVET Institute in Newport, Manchester.
