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.
Some of Christina’s most recent endeavors include the role of a Junior 2D Character Animator on Pitchin’ Impossible, a Comedy Central digital production. Her thesis film, “Condolences from the Vulgar Tongue or (Boner)” has also recently entered the festival circuit, receiving recognition and awards from programs such as Animation Block Party, Sweaty Eyeballs, Ivy Film Festival, Couch Film Festival, and is now proudly streaming on Curia TV! You can hear Christina talk about her process on this episode of Getting to the Truth in this Art.
