Aardman Signs Åsa Lucander to Director Roster
Finnish 2D director, illustrator and animator Åsa Lucander joins the Aardman roster for representation in the UK.
From the release:
With 10 years of industry experience working in illustration, animation and graphic design both in the UK and Scandinavia, Åsa has a passion for hand rendered drawings and exploring textures and mediums. She has directed commercials for TV and online, with recent clients including British Gas, Channel 4, Virgin Media and Radio 4. She has also worked with BBC’s popular Science Club, as well as directed multiple short films.
“Åsa’s animations are lively and playful, with humor that is sometimes dark, yet offbeat and liberating,” says Heather Wright, Executive Producer of Aardman Animations. “She nimbly blends music, authentic dialogue, film segments, hand drawn characters and stop-framed pupped in innovative ways. We are thrilled to be working with her and watch Åsa‘s impressive body of work grow.”
