LIGHT + MATHEMATICS FOR NERD
27 July 2018

NERD Productions have signed Peter Szewczyk - under his animation studio Light + Mathematics - for commercial representation.

Szewczyk had an unlikely start to his career in the world of filmmaking: he campaigned for a pet at the age of ten, only to be given a computer instead. This perhaps explains his enduring love of bringing animated animals to life... although we can't say for certain if he would have preferred a puppy.

From these humble beginnings, Szewczyk has gone on to become one of the industry's foremost animators and designers. He started out at George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch, and from there has honed his craft on ads and feature films alike.



Known for his meticulous attention to detail and free-spirited approach to character design, Szewczyk has worked on numerous Hollywood blockbusters including 'Ice Age', 'Shrek', and the 'Harry Potter' series.


After twenty years in CG, I donít even think about the technical anymore. It allows me to focus solely on crafting the characters, and finding the humour.

 ”

With a stellar reel and over twenty years of experience under his belt, Szewczyk has amassed an encyclopedic knowledge of CG animation which allows him to let loose creatively on projects.

Indeed, Szewczyk describes his experience and ease with his craft thus: "It's transparent, at this point. After twenty years in CG, I don't even think about the technical anymore. It allows me to focus solely on crafting the characters, and finding the humour."
