About me, Kim Alexander. There are 2 strands to my artistic practice:
Arts Education and Commercial Animation
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of the arts to support the positive social, emotional and educational development of both individuals and communities. I have extensive experience working with children in schools, and designing and delivering participatory arts projects for children, teenagers and young adults both in the UK and internationally. Since the recent Covid-19 lockdown I have started to facilitate group and one-to-one art sessions online.
I hold a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and a Postgrad Diploma in Character Animation and am qualified as an Arts Award Adviser at Silver and Bronze levels.
I am fully committed to social justice and inclusion in education, and my practice is informed by a PDC in Therapeutic Communication for Work with Children, with a focus on wellbeing. I hold an up-to-date DBS on the online update system.
In my commercial animation practice I specialise in traditional 2D frame-by-frame animation, vector-based 2D animation and stop-motion. I have over 12 years of industry experience working on both independent and commercial animations for short films, TV and web broadcast. Clients including Google, the BBC, Virgin Media, Vodafone Childline, the NSPCC and Alzheimer’s research among many others.
I have experience both collaborating as part of an animation team at studios including Aardman, Nomint and Superdoodle, as well as directing independently for clients including Random House and the University of Nottingham. I also have experience storyboarding both for animation and live action commercial campaigns.
I particularly enjoy working on projects that have a positive social or educational impact.
I also mentor one-to-one for students on the Central St. Martin's Masters in Character Animation.
