Anne Douris is a director, production designer, animator and Juno-nominated graphic designer from Toronto, Ontario. Her hand-painted animated shorts have been showcased in the Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF),the Toronto Youth Shorts Festival, PBS and MTV. Her music video work has been featured on Stereogum, NME, HelloGiggles, Exclaim!, NOW and Much Music. Her design work on Hollerado's «WHITE PAINT» — an ambitious project that involved hand-painting 10,000 record and CD covers with a group of friends — earned her a Juno nomination for Album Packaging in 2014.
Douris’ most recent animated work saw her collaborating with Canadian folk rock group Rural Alberta Advantage, to produce an animated video for their song “Brother” featuring over 800 painted frames on celluloid. Anne continues to work alongside recording artists to create compelling online content – employing animation and practical effects. Not afraid to get messy, Anne's work focuses on creating vibrant imagery from physical materials with a keen attention to detail — every little thing in the frame has a part to play in the story.
