Nicolette Van Gendt self-portrait

Nicolette Van Gendt drawn self-portrait. Nicolette Van Gendt cartoon animator and artist. London, UK, 24/02/2015

I first met Nicolette Van Gendt, when we were both working on the TVC features "Wind and the Willows" also "Willows in Winter' 1995-96 directed by Dave Unwin. I was one of the cameraman, shooting her scenes, amongst other scenes. When Nicolette was waiting for new scenes to be given to her to animate, she would come to the camera room and play her guitar. These were the only times I heard live instrumental music performed in the camera room and it was music to my ears. RKW
