FLUSHED AWAY

DAVID BOWERS (Director) studied animation at West Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham, but left during the first year to work on "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” as an in-betweener under director Richard Williams. By the end of production, Bowers also found himself animating bits and pieces for the film. After "Roger Rabbit,” Bowers worked at Cosgrove Hall for 18 months on the cult-favorite television shows "Danger Mouse” and "Duckula” before moving to London to work for Steven Spielberg's Amblimation animation. He worked as an animator on "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West” before going freelance to work on commercials and features. Bowers later returned to Amblimation as one of the Supervising Animators on "Balto.” After providing story work in the early stages, he was ultimately credited as a story artist on the project.

With the founding of DreamWorks SKG, Bowers moved to Los Angeles to work as a story artist on "The Prince of Egypt” and "The Road to El Dorado.” It was during this period that he met Aardman's Nick Park and Peter Lord, who asked him to do storyboards for Aardman's first feature-length film, the critically acclaimed "Chicken Run.”

After "Chicken Run,” Bowers continued to shift between Los Angeles and Bristol, England, working on several DreamWorks and Aardman projects, including the hit animated comedy "Shark Tale” and the Oscar®-winning "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.” "Flushed Away” marks his directorial debut.
