Helen Animate, AKA Helen Piercy, is a UK based animator, illustrator and lecturer whose work as a moving image director spans digital, 2D, stop-frame animation and live-action.
Helen has since worked on a diverse collection of projects, from directing an animated short starring Alan Rickman, to collaborating with clients including Children In Need, World Wildlife Fund, BBC Radio One, London Fashion Week, Saatchi Gallery and Sadler’s Wells Theatre.
Her great passion for filmmaking led her to set up Helen Animate Workshops, teaching young people of all abilities animation skills. Her workshop clients include The BFI, Barbican and Museum of London.
Created in 2012, the Helen Animate Blog began as an online platform to share animation tips and tutorials. Today the Animation Journal has evolved into a creative resource space where Helen brings together her ideas, lecture news and filmmaking inspiration.
