Susie Shapones

Animation & film-making have been my passion since my teens and my profession for over 12 years. Since graduating with a Masters in Animation from the University of Technology, Sydney, I have taken on projects for clients across the globe. I apply myself to the craft of creating characters, stories, and ideas, delivered in visually engaging ways.

“I can honestly say that I have rarely had the pleasure of working with such a gifted individual as Susie. She has the ability to both create and animate objects and characters in such a way that they burst with personality and emotion - always answering the brief, and then some. Susie’s immaculate attention to detail and technical knowledge is second to none. Despite all this, she has no ego - she is calm, fun to work with and passionate about delivering amazing work in the nicest possible way.

— Jo Wallace, Regional Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi, London.

“Fred & Eric have worked with Susie on a huge range of jobs, and every time she brings creativity, energy and a genuine passion to what she does. There’s nothing better than collaborating with someone who understands and compliments our creative vision with her own ideas, and will work tirelessly to execute them. She’s a joy to work with!

— Sarah Killeen. Managing Director, Fred & Eric, London.
