Developer Biography

Having spent three years studying Classical Animation at Ballyfermot Senior College in Dublin, Louise crossed the waters, in 1999, to come to England to work for the games company Rare ltd. Having spent the first couple of years at Rare figuring out how to use a computer, she eventually discovered the advantages of applying her classical knowledge of animation to 3d animation and making it work within a game environment.

Louise has worked on numerous projects over the years, including Conker's Bad Fur Day, Conker: Live & Reloaded and most recently has helped animate the Avatar for the new dashboard on the Xbox 360, and is responsible for many of the female voices that can be found in Rare games. This culminated in her winning an AIAS award for best female vocal performance for her portrayal of Leafos in Viva PiƱata.

Louise's is currently the Head of Animation at Rare.
