My name is Ekaterina (Kat) Gusarova and I have worked as an animator since 2016. I co-founded the studio Wooden Plane Productions with my husband, Will Mackenzie, where we worked on a large variety of projects, ranging from directing short films to working in video games and creating assets for TTRPGs.


I graduated in 2016 with a BA in Character Animation, where I was trained for 3D and classical 2D animation. During the pandemic, I decided to study further to expand my skillset, and I graduated with a BSc in Interactive Media in 2021. On top of those, I also hold two diplomas in Classical Art.

I’m an enthusiastic and helpful person who works well with others, so I am looking for a place to contribute to great projects! I have a real passion for creature animation and acting shots, as well as a strong understanding of story structure and media analysis.

I live and work in Vancouver, British Columbia, as a permanent resident of Canada.


In my spare time, I play Dungeons & Dragons, play with my two pet ferrets, paint miniatures and watch dinosaur documentaries. 

I hope that I have piqued your interest with my application! If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to contact me.

Please head to my Past Projects tab for more detailed information about the projects I have worked on, as well as my Showreel

tab which includes a full shot breakdown of my latest works. 

Thank you for your time!
