Ana Songel is an award-winning stop-motion director and animator based in Glasgow, Scotland. 

Her work explores big feelings told through animated metaphors inspired by her own experiences, surroundings, and nature.

Three years ago Ana was selected by the micro-budget film scheme Little Pictures run by GMAC Film and Screen Scotland to make her first commissioned stop motion I Miss Hugs, which has recently screened in BAFTA and Oscar-qualifying film festivals. She is currently building her portfolio as a freelance animator and directing her next stop motion film called Beatless (working title) , through the Screen Scotland-funded scheme Sharp Shorts.


She also loves creating fun colorful stop-motion commercial content for local and international brands and helps them convey their unique message through bespoke animations!
