Who is David Freedman?
There are countless David Freedmans. Most of them seem to be dentists and one is a Nobel Prize winner. This particular David Freedman is far less impressive. He's either a writer who can draw or an artist who can write... well, type.
David started his career as a stand up comic & BBC radio presenter ... and eventually combined comedy with cartoons, and fell into the world of animation... well, tripped.
Fifteen years later and he's never looked back, apart from right now to type this brief bio in the third person. I... er, David has written, co-written (He was in a 9 year prolific writing partnership with Alan Gilbey.) developed and script edited a lot of cartoons.
David works as a script doctor, show runner and is a very busy voice director, helping to make things funny or indeed, funny-er. A bit like Abe Burroughs, but in Animation.
David has won and helped others win a crowded mantelpiece of awards including some BAFTAs, Royal Television Society, and two Oscar nominations.
David has had the good fortune to work for clients on both sides of the pond, such as Aardman, BBC, CiTV, Disney, E1, Fox, Sony, Universal and was Senior Manager of Global Original Programming for Disney Channel.
He can pull teeth, but it's not pretty.
What is David doing right now?
A) Penning two theatrical features that he can't talk about. Frustrating or what?!
B) Doodling up a Lamington greeting card.
C) Writing songs. That's new.
D) Procrastinating on Facebook. What, like you don't?
