MAFCAST#021 Alex Dowding

Alex Dowding is an animation producer at Submarine Studio in Amsterdam. He is currently working on the new Richard Linklater film: Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Adventure (Boyhood, Scanner Darkly, Waking life).

He worked at Illumination for 6 years on the Despicable Me franchise, The Lorax and through to pre-production on The Secret Life of Pets and Sing.

He took a job on The Jungle Book at MPC in the UK. This was a difficult period, not only the late hours and tight deadlines but also being away from his family.

His next adventure after leaving MPC (as they embarked on The Lion King) was to join a small animation start-up in Rotterdam called Zoho Studio. Here he worked in development to get a feature film off the ground.

But when this ship began to sink into the abyss, Alex managed to hop on the “Submarine” to work on Amazon Prime series “Undone” directed by Hisko Hulsing and has now been working there for three years.
