Senior Animator John Batchelor

John has worked in the animation industry for over 10 years. He's animated everything from monkeys to subatomic particles in work for games, education and TV, but unlike his energetic characters, John prefers to move as little as possible.

For 10 years Damian has been trying to achieve the most photo-realistic car render ever seen and he's still trying! A big fan of the cinema, concerts and craft beer. Of course, anything with 4 wheels go without saying. His dream is to visit every country in the world.

Pete Leonard

Outsource Manager
Outsource Manager Pete Leonard

Pete’s been involved in the games and CG industry since 2004, primarily in finding and keeping the best talent that’s out there, covering pretty much everything from modellers, to pipeline developers and everything in between. He kind of stumbled into recruiting (as most do) and then stumbled (again!) on an interest in 3D later on, before pursuing being professional involved in the creative industry - hence the switch to recruiting for games companies. Pete is our custodian for not only talent acquisition but outsourcing efforts too. He likes to spend his time with his wife and little boy, watching films, gaming and socialising.

He loves to problem solve and is always on the look out for new techniques and ideas. Out of work he plays squash for a local team...when his body lets him, has the odd game of golf and enjoys a pint or two at the local.

Having always been an avid gamer and passionate about cars, I began my journey in the CG industry specialising in driving games. Over my 18 years in the industry I worked on or produced over 20 titles. I am now taking this passion for cars to a new level at RealtimeUK working in the automotive department. I am still an avid game fan, currently addicted to Destiny, but when not in front of the PS4 you can find me hunting for the twistiest roads I can find, on my trusty Aprilia RSV.

Like many people my first break into the broadcast industry was as a runner. I worked on a tacky sky dating show that was filmed in the old Granada studios in Manchester. My fellow runner was a young woman who was very keen to get into TV presenting by the name of Zoe Ball. She succeeded! I also worked with a runner called Tom Vaughan and ended up making several short films with him and co-writing a screenplay. Tom is now a successful TV drama director.

Tony Prosser

Tony Prosser

From a very young age Tony followed a career path in creative and visual arts. This truly came into its own during his 5 years at art college when he first discovered computer graphics. His passion for computer graphics and animation is what drove him to establish RealtimeUK back in 1996, with the vision of it becoming a leading creative studio that would achieve the highest levels of creativity and image quality, pushing the boundaries of what was, at the time, a new industry. Now 21 years on Tony’s role remains true to this original vision as he is responsible for ensuring the studio continues to deliver on this promise. His focus today is to drive these core values through everything they do - from recruiting and developing great people, to ensuring they have the best facilities and support to achieve their full potential. This is combined with funding development programs to test and develop new methodologies and service offerings for their existing and future clients.
