Aaron Holmes

Aaron Holmes is an animator and playwright based in the Los Angeles area. His current practice is focused on stop motion and replacement animation. Since 2007, Aaron has helped lead The Colonel Mustard, a collaborative arts nonprofit in Lincoln, Nebraska. Original theatrical works Aaron wrote for The Colonel Mustard have been performed in Lincoln, Chicago, and Brisbane, Australia. Aaron co-wrote the immersive outdoor musical Gods of the Prairie, which was named Lincoln’s Outstanding Event of 2012 at the Mayor’s Art Awards, a recognition of “a performance, exhibition or project that will be notable in the community memory for years to come.”
As a student at Doane University, Aaron created his first stop-motion short, “Neighbors,” which screened at film festivals in several states. At Doane, Aaron also had the opportunity to teach his fellow undergrads in a course called “The Animation Experience,” an introduction to animation history and techniques. Recently, along with his wife and young son, Aaron spent two years living in Lilongwe, Malawi, where he worked as a freelance animator, continued his studies via online animation coursework, and made connections with Malawian designers and animators. Aaron is currently working toward his MFA in Experimental Animation at CalArts. His most recent animated short, “How I Learned to Stop Worrying,” screened at film festivals in the US, Mexico, and Spain.
