Talk: Bridging cultural diversity through the magic of animation
There may be a small child inside every adult, but there is also a small adult inside every child.
Cinzia Angelini has worked as an animator and story artist in feature productions for more than twenty years. After working in London and Munich for Amblimation and Warner Bros, she began the American chapter of her career at Dreamworks. Eventually she would follow a path that would lead to a series of collaborations with all of the major studios in Hollywood, including Sony Imageworks, Walt Disney Animation, Warner Bros, and Illumination Entertainment. Her work includes “Balto,” “Prince of Egypt,” “Eldorado,” “Spirit,” “Sinbad,” “Spider-man 2″ (Best Visual Effects Oscar Winner, 2005), “Open Season,” “Meet the Robinsons,” “Bolt,” “The Minions Movie” and “Despicable Me 3.” She also worked on the “Minions Mayem” Theme Park project for Universal. Cinzia has written and is currently directing her own independent film, “Mila,” a high-quality CG short film about a little girl whose life takes an unexpected turn in WWII. “Mila” is an online, world-wide collaboration produced with the help of 350 artists from more than 35 countries around the world. United by a common goal of creating socially relevant animation, they volunteer their time and talent under one “virtual roof.” Mila is set to be released in 2018. Thanks to her work on “Mila,” Cinzia has been tapped by Film Roman to write and direct an animated film on the story of Malala Yousafzai. Malala is the young Pakistani activist who gained notoriety championing a young woman’s right to education against incredible odds. Cinzia’s limitless passion for animation is the force behind her wide spectrum of projects. Her years as Director, at the helm of such a large crew for “Mila,” combined with the experience she gained as animator and story artist on some of the biggest animated features of our time, gives Cinzia a unique ability to create her feature “One Arrow at a Time.”
