About me
Claire Pinegar is a freelance animation and live-action director working in commercials, explainer films, online content and just about anything that moves.  I’ve worked up around 10 years industry experience, mostly in 2D animation but also a recent few directing live-action. Past projects include directing a mini doc about periods, crafting bespoke animated explainers for charities, making titles for Hollywood trailers and creating AV exhibition content for the V&A. I’ve recently made my first music promo for Andreya Triana and would love to work on more narrative based projects. I’m happy joining a big production team or working directly with clients, taking whole projects from concept to delivery. I always love hearing about projects that in any way promotes positive social and environmental change - so give me the good stuff.

    MyFreda presents: #PeriodDramasYou get shoehorns in hotels. Hairdryers in gyms. Free drinks at work. But where the hell are the sanitary care products? Why is a human basic need overlooked as a luxury item? For this campaign we worked with MyFreda to share women's #worstperioddramas (something almost every woman can connect to) to bring to life the issues women face when they don't access to sanitary care products. As a producer of the shoot, I sourced and cast 17 real women, co-ordinated an all female crew, the production
