Director Biography - Renza Fechser

Renza is currently 27 years old and has spent the majority of her life in Utah where she studied art throughout her entire school career. She earned an associates degree in art from Snow College before transferring to Utah Valley University where she majored in Animation.
During her time at UVU, she had a number of paid internships in which she took part in production of locally-made educational television programs. She had always had a fascination in animated movies and rather missed seeing the hand-drawn style of old Disney classics, which was what led her into the production of "Relic" for her senior project during her final year at UVU.
She's currently working as a freelance animator/artist and has had several local commissions at places such as TML Studios, Candlelight Media and even The Living Planet Aquarium.
