WE ARE A GROUP OF MUSICIANS WHO PERFORM LIVE SOUNDTRACKS TO SHORT FILMS

Founded in 2013, ANIMA is an 8-piece group of top musicians dedicated to performing new music live, synced to animated or live action short films. We have performed at gallery spaces across London, as well as a groundbreaking event, MECHANIKA, 42 feet under the River Thames in the Brunel Tunnel Shaft. Alongside workshops at Oxford University and Trinity College of Music, ANIMA, we are always on the lookout for new venues and film festivals to perform our unique blend of film and music.
