Add Director Biography
Director Statement

I’m Cristian Ciumac,
author and first time director of “Machines”. For my degree project I collaborated with 15
other colleagues to realize a pilot for an animated series.
I started to write down some notes during the pandemic in April 2020. In less than a year we
started the production of the first episode of the series and in July 2021 we presented the
episode at our graduation ceremony. I believe and I hope that in the upcoming month the
project will be further developed.
The story behind the series tells about some deep and personal thoughts about my
background and my opinion of the contemporary world and the vision for the coming one. I’m
sure that a complete content about “Machines” will be realized with or without a budget in the
coming future.
