Tony Pritchett (1938 – 2017) was a British computer animation pioneer.
His career began in 1963 at Elliot Automation, when as a failed salesman he was “swapped¬†to the computing department”.
Over the next two decades, he worked alongside like-minded pioneers, trying to “make computers make pictures”.

Tony was modest and spoke highly of friends and colleagues.
