Director Biography

Hey there!

My name is Rita and my dream is for animation to bring happiness to the world.

I grew up in Portugal and since very young started learning about painting and Fine Arts. During the years I realised that I wasn't very interested in any other area, I knew I needed to be surrounded by artists and creative people.
Over the course of time while studying I still wasn't sure of what was my passion, during some time I worked in different areas but finally decided that I was not contempt with a safe, every-day-the-same job.
I finally ended up doing a Masters in Scotland and realised that Animation in my dream.
My passion for nature, fantasy worlds, animals and activism is present in all the projects and ideas I have.
Now that my course is over, I am overwhelmed with the future and I am planning on doing some more projects and experiments so that I can improve my skills and create great content.
