Helena Kampen

Director, Animator and Illustrator

I’m an animation artist and illustrator born in Brazil in a city founded by Dutch immigrants. Because of my mixture of Brazilian and Dutch heritage, I can communicate well with people of all ethnicities and ages.

I currently live in London (UK). But I’ve also lived and worked in Auckland, NZ and São Paulo, Brazil.

I’m a specialist in 2D animation and Stop Motion. I also work well with Photoshop and Illustrator, and my background as a graphic designer allows me to cross over into art direction and animation.

I have a passion for storytelling and cinema, particularly stop-motion animation. I love working with paper and creating different looks to videos, bringing a differential to any standard job.

I can direct and produce any short or commercial animation.
