Me3My name is Amanda Aiken and I am a freelance animator, illustrator and story artist. I’ve animated sequences for a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award-nominated documentary, created and animated a video for trypraying, drawn concept art and storyboards for a live-action feature film, and designed and animated backgrounds for a Scottish Government Know the Score video.

During the summer of 2016 I was a trainee story artist on the Animation Base Camp, run by Animation Centrifuge with mentorship from Sony Pictures Animation. In 2015 I had an internship at Aardman Animations in Bristol. At the end of 2014 I graduated from the Certificate in Character Animation course run by Aardman and the NFTS. Between April 2013 and April 2014 I studied Classical Animation at Vancouver Film School in Vancouver, BC. My student short film Dreid was screened at British Shorts in Berlin in 2016.

I love good animation, design and storytelling and I’d love to hear about your project. You can me contact via the email button below for more information on my availability.
