Jocie Juritz is a London based animator and director. She graduated from Kingston in 2014 with a BA in Illustration & Animation and has been directing 2D shorts since. Her degree film, ‘Fractured’, was an abstract exploration into the struggles of mental health. After screening at a range of festivals it won a Royal Television Society London Student Animation Award in 2015. Jocie often collaborates with authors, philosophers and scientists to visualise their ideas and concepts. These topics range from a pessimistic technique for reducing anger to the theory that all our memories may be false. Jocie’s organic, hand made aesthetic, allows these themes to resonate with an audience in a personal and emotive way. She works with a range of clients, including CNN, RSPCA, Penguin and the Royal Society of the Arts. Jocie’s work is primarily created in Photoshop, utilising the benefits of computer-based animation whilst still employing traditional hand drawn techniques.
