Director Biography - Mischa Ying Giancovich

As a freelance artist, Mischa Ying's unique style of live action and mixed media animation connects the analogue with the digital to produce distinct abstract narratives. Her progressive work is drawn from her wide experiences and influences in music, sculpture and fashion, stemming from her long-established career as a live visual artist, contributing to all manner and size of theatrical, club and festival settings internationally, from Garsington Opera to Glastonbury Festival.
Her commissions feature widely across the artistic spectrum, from producing the award-winning music promo Wind You Up for R&B star Bernhoft, to animating and performing the work of Damien Hurst as part of a Pete Tong Ibiza residency.
Recent collaborations with Roxanna Panufnik led to series of classically-based videos including a projected 3D performance space for the BBC’s New Shakespeare Songbook featuring Kathryn Rudge, and The Silver Birch – a video design commission for Garsington Opera House based on the work of first world war solider and poet Siegfried Sassoon.
Having produced mainly animated and live action concepts and virals, Storm in a Teacup marked a fresh, brand-new approach as the first of Mischa’s live action films. Working alongside a fantastic team her filmmaking incorporates set and costume design, live projection, special effects and post-production marking the beginning of an exciting future as a writer and director.
