Creative Lives: Anna Ginsburg, animator and director by Lecture in Progress published on 2018-02-01T11:15:13Z Earlier this week we ventured to production company Strange Beast in London to catch up with animator and director Anna Ginsburg, as she worked on her latest project. She talked to us her process, the importance of self belief as a young woman in the industry, and how she first got a foot in the door. Anna graduated with a degree in animation from Edinburgh college of art in 2012, and has since grown an expansive and varied body of work that includes a range of techniques – from live action and hand-drawn 2D films to intricate stop-motion work. Fresh out of university, her first music video for Bombay Bicycle Club won a BAFTA at the New Talent Awards, becoming a springboard for her ongoing work with music acts – which also includes creating tour visuals. And in 2016, her animated documentary ‘Private Parts’, commissioned by It’s Nice That and Channel 4, was met with critical acclaim and screened at film festivals across the world. Anna’s work regularly broaches themes that mean a lot to her, from discussing sexuality to young peoples’ views on politics, taking a fun, relatable approach that often includes comic and absurdist scenes. While she predominantly works for music clients, she has also collaborated with brands such as Selfridges, Reebok and Arm and Hammer. ...
