Emilie began teaching herself how to animate in early 2021. She enjoys physical stop-motion animation mostly because of the process. The tactility of drawing, scanning and editing the frames one by one seems to capture the human touch by nature of this method; where inclusion of charming imperfections that cannot be created by a somewhat clinical digitally created animation.
However, that is not to say that digital animations can't be just as wonderful, they just do not have that same je ne sais quoi.
Emilie is curently experimenting with projecting her animations onto her canvas paintings, as well as modelling her characters to be able to perform walk cycles and other ambitious actions/scenes.
