Hi, I'm Ella, a versatile 3D Animator born and raised in London, with skills from creature, gameplay, and character animation. I have seen my skills grow in leaps and bounds along my Escape Studios journey and I am looking to get any start as a Junior Animator to further my skills.

GET TO KNOW ELLA

What hobbies do you have?

When I'm not working hard on animations, you can find me binge-watching animated tv shows (like 'The Owl House' and 'Steven Universe'), tending to my growing jungle of houseplants, or trying to beat my fastest time in Hades.

What makes you unique?

I believe I am very open-minded and easygoing, allowing me to think out of the box for solutions or just easily get along and communicate well in a team and make sure every team member is heard and supported.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 Years, I'd like to think I would be working hard as an experienced and skilled animator working alongside a great team of people to produce an exciting new project, be it for a film, tv show, advert or game.

Tell us an achievement you're proud of.

In Threaded Together, the spool rig was limited by its large body and small arms and legs. This was particularly a problem in my shot where they had to push up from the floor and usually you would use your legs to help, but spool's legs were short and couldn't reach. So I purposefully stretched the leg unnaturally and focused on having the perfect pose to the render camera so they could look like they actually reach the ground and push off but from any other angle look odd due to the rig's limits.

Which animated movie inspired you the most to choose this career path and why?

One of my favourite movies, 'Guardians of the Galaxy', inspired me to become an Animator. Watching Rocket's character performance made me realise that someone had animated him, and that that was a job I could do, leading me to look at courses that taught 3D animation. I saw Rocket on Escape Studios' pamphlets and saw it as a sign to apply, and here I am.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

The social life + the coffee machines
