Thank you so much @midsummerscream @animazefilmfest Scream Queen Shockathon Film Fest @asylumhorrorshow @weirdfilmfest and @arkansascinema for showing my film ‘Thirst’ so much love this year!!!

Andrea is a motion designer and animation director who has worked for New York Magazine, HBO, and musical artist Jen Kwok.

‘Thirst’ is fantastic. The short animated film tells the tale of a young, ambitious storyteller whose thirst for work and recognition drives them to extremes. You can enjoy ‘Thirst’ on Andrea’s website along with other animated work, or watch below.

Andrea is also the founder of Things Took a Turn, an annual animation festival that offers artists of marginalized genders an opportunity to craft stories based on familiar myths, folklore, and fables. The festival is currently accepting submissions until December 1st, 2023.
