HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Cinzia Angelini has worked as an animator and story artist in feature productions for more than 20 years.
And she's set to give a free public lecture April 19 at KCC's Ohia auditorium. The talk is set for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
After working in London and Munich for Amblimation and Warner Bros, she began the American chapter of her career at Dreamworks.
Eventually she would follow a path that would lead to a series of collaborations with all of the major studios in Hollywood, including Sony Imageworks, Walt Disney Animation, Warner Bros, Illumination Entertainment and Cinesite Studios.
Her work includes "Balto," "Prince of Egypt," "Eldorado," "Spirit," "Sinbad," "Spider-man 2″ (Best Visual Effects Oscar Winner, 2005), "Open Season," "Meet the Robinsons," "Bolt," "The Minions Movie" and "Despicable Me 3." She also worked on the "Minions Mayhem" Theme Park project for Universal.
Cinzia has written and is currently directing her own independent film, "Mila," a high-quality CG short film about a little girl whose life takes an unexpected turn in WWII. "Mila" is an online, world-wide collaboration produced with the help of 350 artists from more than 35 countries around the world.
United by a common goal of creating socially relevant animation, they volunteer their time and talent under one "virtual roof." Mila is set to be released in 2018.
