Lauren Hammersley is a 24-year-old animator and artist from a small town in Suffolk, currently based in London. She graduated from the University for the Creative Arts in 2021 with a first in animation where her film ‘TWITCH’ was made. ‘TWITCH’ has now been featured in many festivals around the world including the Brighton International Animation Festival and recently nominated for best super short film at the Student World Impact Film Festival. As well as talking about her film on stage at Brighton, she’s recently been invited to be interviewed for a podcast discussing her film making process. After graduating from the UCA, she completed her first out of university project, ‘A Beautiful Morning’, which has also been selected for a variety of festivals. Lauren loves to experiment and play with different materials and techniques as well as her more simpler 2D animation approach to create her films.
Aside from animation, she loves photography (which was a big impact on ‘TWITCH’) and is currently illustrating a children’s book. She also sells artwork online and has done many commissioned pieces.
