Neely Goniodsky


Neely Goniodsky has directed and animated over twenty-five short films including productions at the National Film Board of Canada, and The New York Times. She holds a master’s degree in Animation from Royal College of Arts, London, and a bachelor’s degree in Animation from Concordia University, Montreal.

Neely has been animating for over two decades with her works reflecting an ever-ongoing search for new styles and expressions. Neely is interested in interpreting the human condition through abstract narrative and visual experimentation attempting to translate reality into visual poetry. She explores a combination of traditional animation techniques including ink and paint on paper, cut-out collage, under the camera animation, computer drawing, and 2D computer animation. Beyond animation, Neely’s works include video installations, paintings, drawings, and collage.

Neely’s films have been screened at many US and international film festivals including Animasivo, the NW Animation Festival, Portland, Ottawa International Animation Film Festival, Anifilm Czech Republic, Animafest Zagreb, and Encounters Bristol, UK. Neely’s noteworthy productions include Conception Series Season 2 for The New York Times, The Smiths, a Seattle University production, and Pearl, a National Film Board of Canada production.
