Dedicated to bringing light into the dark, Alice Guymer is an animator director whose work centres around life’s difficulties with honesty and humour. Recent Illustration graduate from Camberwell College, she transitioned her drawings into moving image. She loves the intricacies of human emotion and the humour within this. She carries her attention to detail into the animated world, creating density populated worlds as a backdrop for her characters.
She specialises in 2D animation, loving the vast array of movements that can be created in the medium. Injecting herself into most of her animations and illustrations, Alice is set on destigmatizing her flaws with the mindset of self acceptance. Sharing our flaws in a celebration of honesty rather than shame.
She had fused her love of humour and detail into back drops that always aim to interrogate issues of feminism, body politics and capitalism. Drawing on the absurdity of it all, she aims to open the floor to conversation about these issues through her films.
After writing and animating two short films, What does it feel like? (2022) and Making it up (2023) she currently finishing her first collaborative film “Feeling Fruity” with fellow RCA Animation classmate Faye Craig. Blending stop motion and 2D digital animation to build a bizarre world centring around a some what temperamental arcade machine.
