For the third year in a row, Andy Baker collaborated with Studio Moross to direct the launch film of the infamous Parklife Music Festival. While 2017's film had a 1980's time-travel narrative, Parklife 2018 was inspired by cinema and film, both nostalgic and relevant, with easter eggs ranging from E.T. to Aladdin to Indiana Jones. In the film, the same "Parklife Guy" character from films past is kidnapped by a King Kong inspired character (gorilla-napped..?), and taken into an alternate universe, where a new female lead character travels over land, water, air, and ski slopes to save him. 



Ever since he can remember, London native Andy Baker has been obsessed with animation. From over-the-top films like Disney’s Fantasia to Sunday morning regulars like Tom & Jerry, he was immediately hooked. After studying Fine Art in his formative years, Andy went on to pursue a degree in illustration and animation from Kingston University, tailoring his approach and finding his niche somewhere in between the two.

Shortly after graduating, Andy formed multi-disciplinary studio This Is It Collective along with some friends and started taking on commercial work. Their first collaborative project Viceworld, an energetic title sequence for VICE UK, landed This Is It Collective on the map as up-and-coming animators and gave Andy the support he needed to develop his craft.

Since then, Andy has collaborated with multiple artists and illustrators to produce work for clients such as Vans, Warner Brothers, Marmite, Ricard, Adidas, Asics, Seamless, and MTN DEW. His character-driven work and 2D cel techniques—combined with his use of bold color, liquid transitions, and old school animation style—make Andy’s range of work completely contemporary while remaining undeniably classic.
