Download Resume 2019:

Influenced most by animals and nature, Madeleine Mathis implements a handmade, playful feel in her animations.  What drives many of her projects is curiosityan enthusiasm to experiment with unusual materials and techniques, at the very least just to see what will happen.  She plays with any and every kind of animation, from hand-drawn to stop motion to strata-cut.  A casual collector of exotic musical instruments, she often composes and performs the soundtracks for her films.


Madeleine graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in 2015 with a BFA in experimental animation. She was a puppets intern at Screen Novelties during the production of "Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas." She currently makes her own films and other creations in Texas with her scruffy dog, Kazoo.
