Director | Animator




Claire Pinegar is a freelance animation and live-action director creating commercials, explainer films, online content and just about anything that moves. 

Claire brings an extensive background in 2D animation to her work, having studied traditional animation at university before joining a small studio in London. A project for the V&A’s Hollywood Costume exhibition – which involved creating looping images of film characters – sparked her interest in live action, and she began to move into life as a director. Ten years working in animation have proved invaluable, giving her the ability to imagine an edit before it’s been shot as well as a good foundation for visual effects integration.

When it comes to subject matter, it’s the human stories that fascinate Claire, and her ability to create instant on-screen connections with people has won her work with Guardian Labs, Nationwide and UN Women. As well as capturing real-life moments, she’s keen to find out where narrative work can take her, particularly short film. Animation is still very much a part of her practice, with Claire interested in exploring how it can combine with live action, as well as the ways it could work in documentary-style projects.

She is happy joining a big production team or working directly with clients, taking whole projects from concept to delivery. She loves working on projects that promotes positive social and environmental change - so give her the good stuff.

Based in Liverpool/London. Happy to work remotely, anywhere.
