Elena Nikolova

Animator, Snapshot Sofia

Professional Experience:
After graduating with her “Animation cinema” bachelor degree in Bulgaria, she attends a professional 3D Character animation program in Denmark. Right after that, Elena is hired as a 3D animator in Snapshot Games, where she gradually specializes in animating creatures and monsters. At the moment Elena is working for feature films productions (and not surprisingly – as an animator!).

Work highlights:
Bringing characters to live is what Elena loves to do the most. She has a wide range of techniques that she has worked with throughout the years from classical pencil-drawn animation, through digital 2D cutouts to 3D. Starting as a junior 2D animator in the mobile games company Tabtale, she rises to animation team lead and manager. As animation is in the middle of the game development process, it takes an understanding of the previous step and planning for the next.
