I am delighted to announce that our guest at the next London Animation Club live broadcast will be Ellie Land. I have been hoping to get Ellie along to Animation Club for many years but the distance has always been a problem… until now! Ellie is an international award-winning animation director and senior lecturer in animation at Northumbria University. She practices and undertakes research in the fields of animation and documentary. Her work is renowned for portraying difficult subject matters using animation.

London Animation Club used to be a monthly soiree for animators and people interested in animation but is now generally an online broadcast through YouTube, but still features live interviews with invited guests who screen their work. To keep the social side also going, we have introduced occasional Zoom parties.

London Animation Club was founded and is curated by London-based animator Martin Pickles.
