Jim Jagger - VP of Animation - Rockstar Games



Jim Jagger is Vice President of Animation at Rockstar Games.  A graduate of Bournemouth University, he has over 25 years’ experience in video game animation.  He has spent the majority of his career with Rockstar Games, working on a wide array of projects including the Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto series, LA Noire and many more.


Prior to Rockstar, Jim worked in the US, Canada and China on series such as Tony Hawk Pro Skater and Splinter Cell.

Jim has a lifelong passion for video games, and is a member of the BAFTA Games Committee.

Jim fell in love with animation after watching Who Framed Roger Rabbit. As a teenager he animated as a hobby and although it has since become his career, it never ceases to provide the enjoyment and fulfillment it did as a youth.

His obsession with games began when he discovered Frogger, but it was not until he received his first computer that his passion really took hold.  Years later, that addiction is as strong as ever.

Jim is incredibly fortunate to combine his interests, and he's extremely proud to work with such talented colleagues.  He's been involved with many games and he's looking forward to making many more.
