Director Biography - Charlotte Hardy

Charlotte’s work as a storyteller centers around her experience of growing up in rural New England. The outdoors has become a focal point in her animated pieces, as she finds that rural areas are a setting that fosters imaginative stories. Like a blank sheet of paper, natural spaces allow people to wander, explore, play, and express themselves in an open environment. She utilizes the imaginative capabilities of the animated medium, alongside her treasured relationship to her childhood home in the woods of New Hampshire, to create stories that bring her lifelong fantasies of interacting with folktales into everyday life.
