Who We Are
AnimatedDocumentary.com was set up by animadoc directors Alys Scott-Hawkins & Ellie Land in 2011 as interest was growing in animated documentary.

Carla is a filmmaker with a background across animation, live action, art and events. She graduated from an MA in animation at Royal College of Art in 2013 and is currently a PhD candidate at Arts University Bournemouth, conducting practice-based research into the Institutional and Production Contexts of animated documentary.
Linnea makes short animated documentaries mainly centered around the theme of gender, race and representation, mixing different techniques in order to question the positions of artist and viewer. She currently works at Studio Aka and as a Youth Peer Mentor.
As UK-based film-makers we’re aware that what we already know has an English language and European bias, but we’re keen to represent what’s happening in animadoc all around the world, so we’d love you to contribute your news too.
Please do get in touch if you’d like to join the community and contribute news, reviews or share updates on your projects. Find us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or via the RSS feed, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
