About Me


My name is Chiara Porri, I’m Italian and I came from a lovely small town on the sea in Tuscany!

I always had a natural needs to pour out my creativity, I started with drawings, comics, paintings and much more…!  After the High School I attended an Animation Course in Turin, Italy (for 3 amazing years) and from that moment…I never stopped. 🙂
As Character Animator I worked for Tv Series, Movies and Videogames. Here you can find a link to my Vimeo Channel so that you can have an idea of my job as Animator: Chiara – Vimeo Channel

At the moment I’m working as freelance animator and I will try to find the time to add always new contents on this blog 😉

In my spare time I create tv series pitch, short movies, animation tests, ….this blog…, concepts for videogames, comics, I sew handmade puppets, I love cooking,  long walks in the parks and…I love to play with my American Staffordshire Terrier…Evy!evy01

A surprise in my basement…!


I want to share with you this beautiful surprise I found in my basement 🖤The reason why I’m not creating new contents for my animation channel (but I’ll start soon…It’s a promise😉) is that I’m dedicating my time to clean out my family house from all the old things my parents, grandparents and great-grandparents gathered over the years…..and…. hidden among all this old stuff I found…an early 900s Magic Lantern!😍An amazing and fascinating precursor of the actual animation….I think my dad and my grandad probably didn’t even know what it was…and then…here I am…an animator who found this in her basement….I so love it and make me think it really was my destiny 😄😍
