She learned all aspects of animation production; she most enjoys background design and layouts followed by compositing, editing, and post all aspects of production to deliver a polished finished product. She prefers to explore darker and more mature themes: horror as a subculture of animation is very under-developed, although animation offers the most creativity of any other medium. She’s discovered many independent artists and studios creating really fantastic and original work, and she’d welcome working in a similar setting.
