"Jarred has worked with me as an animator over the last few years; he's an excellent artist,takes direction really seriously and combines a keen eye for his craft with responsiveness to feedback and professionalism towards his work. He's fun, outgoing and yet very modest, and is liked by all his friends and colleagues at bitfilms."
