Will Becher is a Director and Creative at Aardman in Bristol. He began his career in the late nineties when he landed a summer work placement on Chicken Run – building ‘clay wings’ in the model making department.

The film went on to win an Academy Award® and BAFTA®. Will has since worked on series, commercials and feature films as a Lead Character Animator on both The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists and Shaun the Sheep Movie. More recently, he directed Shaun the Sheep Series 5 before taking the role of Animation Director on Early Man.
