I'm Nikita House, an award-winning Director and Writer with a passion for crafting compelling characters and authentic visual narratives across the platforms of television, film, and branded content.
I graduated with a BA specializing in Animation Directing and Screenwriting from The South African School of Motion Picture Medium & Live Performance (AFDA) in 2014. That year I won the award for Best Animator and was awarded a full scholarship by the National Film and Video Foundation.
Since then, I have worked as a Director and Writer on several original short films with my first cinematic release in November 2013. I have also worked as a Creative Director and Motion Designer for a number of production companies both nationally and internationally. I thrive working in an environment that is person-centered and collaborative with ample opportunity for personal growth, sharing skills and ideas, and creative problem solving.
When I'm not behind a camera or computer I spend my time with my children exploring the outdoors and going on adventures.

Nikita and I have worked together on a number of animation projects varying from short films to creative advertising briefs from development through to implementation. She never fails to impress with her passion and ability to create engaging moving work be it in here writing ability or in the outstanding animation that she never fails to deliver. Nikita is always professional and reliable She has great leadership skills, having co-written and co-directed an animated short film that went on to be shown in cinemas in November 2013 as well as running creative teams remotely to deliver outstanding work. Nikita is a valuable asset to any client, company or production looking for her skillset. I look forward to working alongside her again in the future.

Nikita is a brilliant motion designer and storyteller, she has a passion for animation and acknowledges the principles of the past while also creating engaging work in her own personal style. A hard working and dedicated team member, fun to be around and always quick with ideas and solutions. Highly recommended!
