View my Demo Reel 2017

Hallo! I'm Ami, an enthusiastic animator who enjoys telling stories through motion, and I specialise in storytelling with character in educational animations. I graduated with distinction from The University of Edinburgh where I earned an MSc creating immersive animation experiences. When I am not losing myself off the edges of maps, I am creating colourful stories in After Effects and Photoshop. My most recent studio home is at a growing digital learning company in London which provides modern animated lessons for global clientele. Currently, I am located in Berlin.

Joy in Motion

Educational and explainer videos have been the staple of my animation career, from a scribe video about Oxfam's Raising Her Voice programme, to animating philosophical ponderings, or even colourfully explaining digtal marketing techniques to multinational companies. Sometimes these topics can get quite dry - but a carefully thought-out animation can go a long way in quickly sharing information, promoting understanding and inspiring empathy!



Loop de loop Challenges

A rainbow-themed loop designed and animated for the bi-monthly Loop de loop challenge and screened internationally coinciding with International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia using After Effects and Photoshop. I frequently create animations from scratch, starting from concept art and storyboards through to the finished product, in some cases doing the sound along the way. And I enjoy animation challenges and side projects which give me the time to explore new programs or techniques and to keep my skills sharp.

I am available for personal or commercial illustration, concept, and character work. Working on comic pages or wedding illustrations make me especially happy!
