Hi there! I'm Joana Bartolomeu, an Animation Director, Animator, Set Designer, Model Maker, Puppetry, Pop Up and Automata lover, ... from Portugal!
I live in Almada, very close to the river Tejo, where I get my daily inspiration from.
I studied Graphic Design in Lisbon at IADE, and very early the passion for storytelling and enchanted worlds spoke very loud. Since concluding an Animation Direction MA from the National Film and Television School in England, I have been working in this field, directing small author animation projects, animating in commercials, creating sets and props, building puppets, as well as teaching animation alongside.
At the moment, I'm researching editorial design and illustration, and immersing myself in the Pop Up and Automata world :)
Feel free to contact me :)
