Emma Goudie is a multidisciplinary animator who works and lives in the Greater Toronto area. Her work explores the dissonance between intersecting identities, mutable bodies, and how commodity consumes culture. While she enjoys producing both 2D drawing and puppet animations, Emma’s media of choice is passionately stop motion. The use of various found and/or hand-made materials to create one harmonious film makes the medium synonymous with hybridity. Stop motion’s mixed media production lends well towards feelings like - metamorphosis, the uncanny, and an “eerie stage-presence”. These features are how Emma best uses her medium to perform the underlying themes and emotions in her narratives.

Emma received her BFA and a specialization in Animation from OCAD University in 2021, graduating with Distinction. Since then, she has continued to show work in festivals and worked as the lead animator on a short film production.
