Amanda Nedermeijer

Animator

Amsterdam, Netherlands
I’ve spent the last decade working in animation, and a little over 30 years drawing, crafting, writing, and playing.

Raised on a sturdy diet of books, movies, music, and art, my inner creative beast has grown to an impressive size (with an equally impressive appetite). I am curious, driven and imaginative, believe in 'always doing your best', and getting back up again when you fall (it’s cold on the floor anyway).

I love concepting and can clearly communicate my vision. I like to approach projects based on story, emotion, and intention. Above all, I believe that the concept - the heart of any project - should be solid as a rock. High pressurized carbon preferably.

When I’m part of a team, I do my best work. It’s incredible to see what enormous mountains people can move when aiming for a shared goal. Great colleagues are of the greatest value, and so is a good working environment. A place where everyone feels free and safe to exchange ideas and opinions.

I am itchily aware of everything I don’t know, but I'm very eager to learn. Whatever knowledge I've gathered so far I will lovingly share with whoever is interested.
