ANNY Animator Interview #36 featuring Independent Animator Matisse Gonzalez

Animation For Adults: The AFA Podcast

Jan 18 2022 • 17 mins

Evan Vernon interviews Matisse Gonzalez, director of Gravedad.  Matisse Gonzalez Jordán is a Bolivian animator, illustrator and  director who graduated in 2019 from the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.  Her graduation Film "Gravedad" has been shown in several international  Animation Festivals, won multiple awards and was nominated for the Annie  Awards 2020. Matisse’s shorts explore deep emotions and feelings,  expressing them in tangible ways. Coming from Bolivia and living in  Germany, she connects the best of both worlds creating chaotic, yet  structured; tragic, yet funny; outgoing, yet intimate films. Matisse  recently developed a pilot episode for Cartoon Network Latinoamérica as  part of the Girl Power program for Pixelatl while also working on her  new film as part of ASF (animation sans frontières). Gravedad was  recently selected as a Winner in the Animation Nights New York 5th ANNY Best of Fest in 2021.
