Christina Fidler is an award-winning 2D character animator with passions in directing, screenwriting, and community arts organization. Born and raised in New York City, she took the journey to Baltimore, Maryland to receive a BFA in Animation at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). There, she served as the President of the Maryland student chapter of Women in Animation based at MICA, working alongside her colleagues to create workshops, panels, and empowering spaces for gender inclusion and cultural diversity.
Her work plays with the tensions between comedy and anxiety. Twitchy lines, fast-paced gags, and off-kilter universes are used to draw attention to the feelings and thoughts that make the human experience so fun, painful, and undeniably universal.
Christina’s most recent endeavor has been the role of a Junior 2D Character Animator on an upcoming Comedy Central digital production. Her thesis film, “Condolences from the Vulgar Tongue or (Boner)” has also recently entered the festival circuit, receiving recognition from programs such as Animation Block Party, Sweaty Eyeballs, and Couch Film Festival.
