About Tommy Robin

Tommy Robin

Tommy has a strong presence in the online animated film community. Under the name “ockeroid” he has become well-known as the creator of many of his own and collaborative animations. His portfolio bridges the expertise of writer, director, animator, composer and producer of his own work and collaborations with and commissions from others in the film and games industries. Being home educated due to illness, Tommy is used to not fitting the mould. But rather than letting this discredit him, he used it to his advantage, taking up animation as his new tool for sharing his perspective on the world. Now recovered, he is ready to take on more ambitious projects and push his film career further.
