CEO, Triggerfish Animation
Stuart is the CEO of Triggerfish Animation, a Cape Town-based studio which has recently produced two animated feature films. As the leading producer on the projects, Stuart oversees all aspects of financing, legal, sales, script development, production, marketing and distribution of the films.
Triggerfish has a bold ambition to create full-length CG feature films that rival the established studio films. Their first film, Adventures in Zambezia, starring Abigail Breslin, Jeff Goldblum, Leonard Nimoy and Samuel L. Jackson, has recently started its international release to outstanding box office success. This has established Triggerfish as one of the world's leading independent animation studios. Their second film Khumba will be released late 2013.
Stuart was a finalist for the 2012 Sanlam/ Business Partners Entrepreneur of the Year Award, winning South African Innovator of the Year. He is a member of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and was selected as a judge for the 2012 International Emmy Awards. He has a BTech Fine Art (cum laude) from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.
