About Me


This is meFRANCESCA PICH is based in London, but wiling to move anywhere.

She has now three years of experience as animator, and she developed a skill in learning software very quickly, due to her multimedia background.

Among other software, Francesca knows how to use most of the Adobe Suite (between 3 and 10 years experience depending on the software) and she can easily animate both with Flash (Symbols or Traditional) and After Effects. Other animation software she can use at a professional level are TvPaint and Celaction 2D.

Francesca made three animated movies with Celaction, and she rigged most of the characters herself. During the process she was very keen getting suggestions from professionals and to experiment to find a way to make her character work as she wanted to. She also experimented a lot with several features of Celaction, including limber, path and effects, and she found a good combination for her characters.
