Laura Yilmaz


I’m a creative director, art director, animator, and educator for animation, games, and interactive art. My work in motion design has taken top prizes at the Emmys, Clio Awards, ADC Awards, A-List Hollywood Awards, and Telly Awards, and was nominated for a Cristal at Annecy Animation Film Festival. My personal work has been incubated at the Sundance New Frontier Story Lab and the Swedish indie games accelerator/residency Stugan, and was recently awarded a UNESCO City of Film grant in my current home of Wellington, New Zealand.
