From student to Director of an original Netflix TV show, hear from one of our favourite animator experts as he presents a making-of of his Bafta-nominated short film 'Only a Child'.


Simone Giampaolo is a London-based Swiss Director with an insatiable appetite for meaningful storytelling, emotional narratives and humorous characters.

Throughout his career, he’s written and directed over ten multi-award-winning original short films, including the Oscar®-shortlisted and BAFTA-nominated ‘Only a Child’.

In recent years, he’s been working on a multitude of commissioned projects for clients such as Netflix, Google, Cartoon Network, Disney, LEGO, Nickelodeon, Marvel, Pokémon and BBC, collaborating with world-class studios like Jellyfish Pictures, Axis Studios, Blue Zoo, Ritzy Animation and Aardman (which has been representing him as Short-Form Director since 2018).
