Suzie Hanna is Emerita Professor of Animation at Norwich University of the Arts. She is an animator who makes independent and commissioned films in collaboration with academics, artists, scientists, poets and musicians. Her numerous short films have all been selected for international festivals, TV broadcast, curated shows and public service platforms.

Recent work includes theatrical and architectural projection and live improvised VJing. She contributes to books, journals and conferences and was Chair of the National Association of Higher Education in the Moving Image from 2016 to 2019, continuing to work as a PhD supervisor and international examiner. She runs creative workshops on many aspects of her research and practice, and plays the violin and the musical saw.

I employ diverse approaches and techniques in mixed media animation production, including stop-motion, object theatre, shadow work, painting and drawing. Commissions include animated scenery for theatre and large architectural projection as well as short films for education and entertainment.

My current personal focus in research and practice is poetry animation made in collaboration. This includes VJ improvised animation in performance.

I have played the fiddle since childhood and continue to perform with a family band The Marisca Trio. Find us on Instagram and Facebook.

We perform music for Sacré Theatre’s annual productions as well as Music Hall since working in street theatre in the 1980s.
