Hi, I'm Hattie, and I am a director, animator, illustrator, artist, eternally curious, maker of things and doer of stuff.
I used to live in a monastery, now I live on a roundabout.
Mostly, I make films.
I specialise in traditional, hand-drawn animation and documentary film, with particular interests in sound design, editing, and experimental filmmaking techniques.
Much of my work focuses on social justice, and I believe animation to be the perfect tool for documentary film, and as a way to describe subjective experiences and states of mind.
My films have have earned 16 international awards having screened in more than 100 film festivals, in over 35 countries and across 6 continents.
I'm still trying to break Antarctica. Tough crowd.
I have delivered talks about my work at various film festivals including the BAFTA qualifying Aesthetica and London International Animation Festivals.
I am a Lecturer of Animation at the University for the Creative Arts. I have also taught Fine Art, Graphic Design and Illustration.
