The Company

Tapocketa (pronounced Ta-pocket-ah) was set up to innovate and explore rich and engaging animation techniques to tell stories in new and enchanting ways.  So much of modern life is peppered with rehashed repetition of the same experiences, we want to contribute an absorbing and beautifully crafted alternative.

The Founders

We have always worked in various parts of the creative industries...

Eleanor

My experience is much more on the practical side.  I tend to make all the sets for the animations which start out as paper models although I am involved in the digital side too.  My background is in model-making for TV and feature film and I am a Masters alumni from the Royal College of Art.

Trevor

My background is in feature film vfx, leading teams and creating effects shots for three of the Harry Potter movies and the Hunger Games: Catching Fire amongst many others. I lean more towards creating the characters and the digital side of the creation process.

Our first book, Galdo's Gift,  a super enhanced ebook with animated illustrations and so much more is currently available on the Apple iBooks Store.
