Who is the Itch

Ever had an Itch to try something different, or to push for something better?
Well, this company is our itch, and we can use it to help you scratch yours.

The Magnificent Itch is an animation studio residing in Surry Hills, NSW. Comprised of 3 key players, we’ve known and worked together in Sydney for 10 years.
Animation is always something we’ve loved, and animators are people we’ve long admired. It is an art form that can be fun and childish, or highly complex and emotive, but rarely boring. And that’s why we believe in the power that animation has to connect with people.

Feel free to give us a call. We’d love to have a chat about how we can help you out.

 

Stefan Wernik

Stefan worked in the design and animation industry in Bristol England for 10 years before starting a family and emigrating to Australia. Based in Sydney, he animated and directed on countless TVCs as a freelancer. Now, as Co-Director of The Magnificent Itch he has brought his unique visual style to many projects. You can often catch Stefan skateboarding with his daughter at Bondi Bowl.

 

Guy Jamieson
Director

Guy has worked in the animation industry of Sydney Australia since 1996. A few series, a feature film and a large number of TVCs fill Guys’ portfolio. His concepts and writing add flavour to The Magnificent Itch, but also loves to wrap his fingers around some animating. Guy is often seen pacing indecisively in the Lego isle of your local toy store..
