My name is Jocie, pronounced joss-ee.
I’m a London based Animation Director.
I am approached with curious briefs…
All your memories are probably false. Reduce anger by giving up on optimism.
Make an entirely white film about the colourful history of white.
Condense a 600 page book into 30 seconds of imagery and explain how nanomolecular genetic switches work in 3 minutes.
I love animation because I get to struggle with, learn about, devour, obsess over and then visualise topics like these.
