Lexi - Animator

The Jolly RogersComment

Lexi is a graphic designer. She makes film trailers and does work for the BBC. She also showed us a show reel of her work which she created in university. Her first animation is called 'Happy Pill' and it is about a stick man who found a pill and ate it. Then he turned into a pill. It took her 2 weeks to make the animation. 

Lexi is 30 and she sings in a band called 'HoopDriver'. She migrated from China to England when she was 17. She also plays hockey in the Olympic stadium but not professionally. Her favourite food is dumplings and she has a dog called Holly who is 6 years of age. If she could be an animal she said she would be a bird of any kind. She is inspired by her favourite movies 'Jurassic Park' and 'Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind' which is a Japanese animation movie. It was also released in 1984 which was the year Lexi was born. She likes this movie because the girl was the heroine not a boy which made it more interesting. You can find her on twitter @littlelasai.
