Eve McConnachie studied Animation at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee. After graduating with a First Class, she expanded her skills at the filmmaking charity Glasgow Media Access Centre whilst working as a freelance graphic designer. After stints designing for the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the Glasgow Film Festival, McConnachie joined Scottish Ballet as in-house designer and filmmaker in 2009.
McConnachie heads the design team responsible for Scottish Ballet’s production campaign branding. She is also responsible for creating Scottish Ballet’s film content – trailers, behind-the-scenes documentaries and short dance films.
McConnachie has created a number of award-winning short dance films which have been screened at film festivals around the world, including Haud Close Tae Me which examines the connection between our younger and older selves, and Maze in which two people discover each other in the setting of the derelict Govanhill Baths. Most recently she directed the TV spot for Scottish Ballet’s 50th Anniversary ‘Make a Wish’ appeal.
Her latest film for Scottish Ballet Frontiers - a collaboration with Choreographer Myles Thatcher - premiered in May as part of Scottish Ballet's Digital Season 2019.
