    We spent an hour talking about his impressive career, how he got started and his tips for any inspiring writers; plus how it felt to work at acclaimed studio Aardman and having created his first series after his hard work. I had a bit of a roundabout career I guess. I was obsessed with animation and cartoons when I was a kid. I saw the Aardman Claymation movies when I was a teenager which just blew me away and got me obsessed with Claymation.

    I loved the Saturday morning cartoons. I used to draw comic strips with my sister who was my solo audience back then. I always knew I wanted to work in animation so I did an arts degree followed by a year-long animation degree in which we learnt 2D animation techniques and Claymation. We did animation with sand and glass and we animated with meat products which stunk up the studio after a day under the hot lights.

    But I sort of got distracted in my twenties. I ran a corporate video business and then through a contact I got a job as a comedy writer on a topical news series called Rove which was on once a week which I loved doing, telling jokes for adults on a lot of contemporary views.

    But my heart was always in animation and I was always working on my own little ideas on the side and I had the opportunity to move to the UK when I was about thirty. The industry over there is quite spectacular, the kids TV industry. I went and met him and he was developing two shows that he created, one called Numtums and one called Go Jetters and he was looking for a writer to help develop those, to write some scripts to expand the bible and really flesh out those shows.

    I was lucky enough to hit it off with him and he invited me to some workshops for those shows and then to go and write the pilot script and flesh out the bible. It was developing those shows that kind of got the ball rolling.

    I was lucky enough through that process that I was able to meet this fabulous producer, Barry Quinn, and his faith in me led to working on those shows and then securing an agent in the UK, which then gave other producers confidence to hire me on their shows.

    What are the challenges involved with writing comedy and trying to get 6 to 12 year olds to laugh? You have to find clever ways to entertain an eleven year old whose quite sophisticated and possibly watching shows like Rick and Morty and Family Guy, but you have to write for them within the boundaries of that age group. What is it about animation that appeals to you personally?

    Which age groups do you personally prefer to write for and why? I love writing for all of them. I love being able, in any given week, to work on a variety of shows for a variety of different audiences and be back and fourth in-between. Love Monster As you are also someone who has written television bibles and pilot scripts, what are your key tips for anyone who is looking to break into writing for animation? I went out there when I was younger, trying to pitch my own shows and get those up and happening first, but I think what was most admirable going to write for other shows.

    The first preschool show I was hired on was Fireman Sam and I learnt so much from the wonderful head writers Laura Beaumont and Paul Larson, who have been head writers for a few series, and knew the characters so well and the situations Sam and the kids could get up to on that show and guide me through.

    I would have story ideas that help me shape those stories into something that felt very much like a Fireman Sam story. It was like a personal class with two wonderful teachers.

    For a start, I would suggest to try to get hired as a writer on shows that you love. How do you do that?

    What I would recommend is you definitely take that baby, that series concept you got, on your own. Write a bible, look at other bibles if you can, any writers that you look up to who you can email and ask if they can share any of their own bibles. And then flesh out your own pilot script based on that bible and I would thoroughly recommend spending the money on a script editor.

    Secondly, you can use that script as your sample, and that is something anyone is going to hire you will often want to see. I think the very best example of your work is your original idea fleshed out into a script.

    One of the companies I would like to know what they were like to write for are Aardman. It was an absolute dream come true. Going into Aardman in Bristol was a pinch myself moment. I went in there to pitch this idea and he was very excited about the idea. It was working with him and Sarah in person and a bunch of Skype sessions along the way that I ended up writing six episodes for that series, which is about to premier soon on Sky. It was a dream come true. This series, I feel like we really got to push the boundaries of Morph and explore his world.

    How did you get involved with voice acting and were you able to use this unique position to help with writing for the show? I was basically making an offer to the producers to come in and voice this character and they said yes. So I got in there and I got to work with the cast in the studio.

    The cast were much more talented than me and I needed many more takes to get my lines right. The director had to put me through my paces, but I got a kick out of seeing an animated character with my own voice coming out of his mouth. Dialogue can be clunky and hard to get your mouth right sometimes. It was a lot of fun to get out from behind the desk and step into a booth and work with a director to bring a character to life in a whole new perspective.

    Thomas and Friends Tim Bain Fireman Sam Are there any shows that you would have liked to write for and if so, what were those titles? Many shows. I was so new to that world and it was nice to spend time on the table for a few days.

    Looking back, I would love to apply to that show with more experience that I have now. Aardman was definitely the one I wanted to write for and had that opportunity recently. The shows I usually write are mainly eleven to twenty two minutes long. I think that would be a really exciting challenge, particularly to tell stories on a big screen with a bigger budget and I just need to find the time to sit down and start coming up with my own feature film ideas. As a parent and a writer, what was it like to have written for Bluey and put your own experience in a successful Australian production?

    I was very chuffed to write that episode Mount Mumanddad. When I read the bible and read the scripts and watched the pilot they sent me during the start of production it just blew me away. I would have loved to have more experience as a parent when I came to that show. The episode I came up with was called Mount Mumanddad, which was based on my experience using my dad as a mountain when I was young and how amazing it was to be small in size and have this huge parent you can climb all over.

    So I drew on experience from my own childhood. I wish I was writing more Bluey and now I would defiantly bring the experience I have with my own kids to the table. Bluey What are you currently working on? I was a little Nipper when I was a kid, which was like a junior lifeguard in Australia where you learn all about water safety, how to rescue people and we play beach sports.

    It was a lot of fun. My dad was a lifesaver when he was younger. Being an Australian I thought some of the best beaches are in Australia. So the lifeguards in the show are all kangaroos. Kangaroo Beach.

    Q: The first question is tell us about your music background A: So I grew up in Brissy and started playing around the Brissy scene in the late 80s. In about I started up a band with my friends called Custard, and then we had a good 10 years of releasing albums and doing gigs. The band stopped playing together around the year and then I did a bunch of other projects during the early s.

    Custard started playing together again in about and then I started doing the voice of Bandit Heeler on Bluey about Q: How did you transition into voice-over work? A: People ask me what's it like to be a voiceover artist, and I'm not really coz I only do this one thing. Because I don't have to put on a voice or do any real acting, the transition was pretty easy.

    Q: Kids absolutely love the TV show Bluey why do you think it's so popular? A: I think it's popular because it looks good. It's got its own style and the drawings are really cool. So I reckon that's got a lot to do with it and, as a parent, I find it funny. I think it's very well written. This is made for four-year-olds and up. They are good things to be in life: look good and be funny. It's pretty relatable to my real life. So much so that my partner Lucy would often accuse me of leaking story ideas to the Bluey creators.

    She was convinced that I was feeding them plot lines. But it's just a universal thing that happens to parents. When we're doing the episodes, I'm laughing. I'm laughing because that's completely me. That's exactly my life. Maybe I've got a dual personality, or maybe they've installed cameras in my house and the recording everything laughs. Q: Do you have a favourite Bluey episode? It's a nice meditation on parenthood and generations and time. I read a lot into that last 10 seconds.

    Q: Have your personal fatherhood experiences shaped and inspired your portrayal of Bandit? A: It makes me very easy to understand the script and relate to the script. So, even though I'm not an actor I think it's very authentic for me when we're doing the episodes when these things happen - especially emotional things and some of the sadder bits.

    A: Only once in a shopping centre. But it was just fun. Q: If your spirit animal was a dog which breed of dog do you identify most with? Because of all the dogs that I've had during my life, the purebred ones have been a touch more troublesome than the ones that are just a bitser. Maybe Dalmatian, Labrador and a little bit of Jack Russell in there. That would be my combo.

    Not very smart but pretty chilled. To find out which other stars will be there head to supanova. Subscribe Subscribe to our Newsletter and stay up to date! Please enter your name.

A Flashback shows Bluey dropping a box of cereal out of shock after seeing Chilli cover up one of her refrigerator drawings with the entire door being covered in such drawings with Bingo's " perfect " one.
