about me

director_MacarenaCampos.jpg
Illustrator, animator & art director
I'm an illustrator and animation filmmaker from Montevideo, Uruguay.
 
I have worked with national and international companies, where I have performed in a wide and varied range of positions: art direction for a mobile game, creation and illustration of a Google Doodle and direction and animation of a music video.
My first short film, Por Amor, was premiered in 2018 and selected by several animation festivals, including Monstra and Anima Latina. For Love received also the nomination for Best Latin American Short Film at the Chilemonos International Animation Festival.

 
Having a background in architecture and industrial design, and being passionate for art history and fashion, the continuous search for new interests, aesthetics and visual forms to tell the stories is a constant in all of my works.

Currently I’m taking part of StopMoLab, an international training program for the stop-motion animation industry while I continue working as a freelance artist.
