Ben Simonds


I'm a 3D Artist and a Director of Gecko Animation Limited, a small animation and post production studio based in London, England. We produce models, visual effects, animation, graphics and product visuals for TV, advertising, film and digital media. Gecko Animation’s in- house short animation Assembly: Life in Macrospace won the 2011 Suzanne Award for Best Designed Short Film at the Blender Conference in Amsterdam.

I also write tutorials and articles for my own website (, 3DArtist Magazine and Blender community websites, including Blender Cookie and BlenderNation.

I am also the author of Blender Master Class, a book about creating 3D art with blender.
