3D ANIMATOR

(Brenda Ximena ("Xime") Roldan Romero) I was born on the 22 of April 1997. Spanish/British, currently based in England Warwickshire and London areas. I graduated with First-Class Honours BA (Hons) Computer Animation and Visualization at the NCCA (National Center of Computer Animation) Bournemouth University in 2019. And I completed MA in 3D Animation at the same institution graduating with Distinction in 2020. I had the honor to write and Direct the Award Winning short film "Gaia" as my postgraduate graduation film. The short film has been 2 times award winner and counts with over 20 international film festival selections. I also participated as a mentee in AccessVFX and Woman In Animation (WIA) Circles program. 

I started my professional journey in December 2020, working with Blue Zoo Animation Studios as a Junior 3D Animator for the TV series "Pip and Posy" In this show, I had the opportunity to work on 12 episodes and create almost 10 minutes of animation. I also took part in BZ's short film in Blender software "Sinking Feeling" . In August 2021 I joined MPC (London) where I worked as a 3D Junior Animator on "Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers (2022)", "Prehistoric Planet (2022)" as well as some upcoming projects in Episodic VFX and Film as a 3D Animation Artist. Since June 2022, I am working at Blue Zoo Animation studios as a Mid-3D Character animator for "Pip and Posy" Season 2 (2023).

I am also the Vice-Chair at London ACM Siggraph, as well as part of the ACM SIGGRAPH Professional and Student Chapters Committee, as a Liaison to South American, European, and African Chapters. These volunteer associations allow me to mentor young animators in universities, events, and film festivals, allowing me to give back to the community. As well as create and develop opportunities for the communities to promote and network with new artists.

I grew up as a self-taught artist, inspired by my artistic family, where design, art, and music have been a fundamental part of my education.

​I am passionate about creating projects that convey a message to the audience. I mainly focus on environmental 'green' stories. I believe that as filmmakers we have the tools to tell fantastic and entertaining stories, but also to teach something while we do, it creating awareness in our audience. I believe it is a small contribution and duty as an artist towards our society and our planet.
