Hey this is Kayu, 2D 3D artist based in Paris, France, who has always been better at drawing and computer than speaking about herself. Let's face it we both know I am the one who write this and it is confusing as hell.
Working in Annecy Animation Festival inspired me to drop out of philo and history class in Sorbonne and jump right into animation school... so as to graduate from Supinfocom Arles (Ecole Mopa) during Covid .
My first solo short film “Evol” has been selected by different festivals including the Animafest Zagreb and DC Independent Film Festival.
My graduation film : Les Chaussures de Louis has travelled and shared with audiences in different countries via multiple film festivals, including Gold medal in International Animation Category at the 2021 Student Oscar Academy Awards, now streaming on Canal+.
Currently a Freelance director/illustrator and 2D3D lighting compositing Artist,
my clients included, Ted-ed Talk, Los Angeles times, Inserm and Vogue .
I like to consider myself as --
how my mom tries to make sense of what I do for a living:
Puppet show entertainer in computer.
2D 3D and everything in between.
