Alessandro Ceglia is an animator and award-winning filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. He is a graduate of Dartmouth College as well as the three-year Animation and Digital Arts Master’s program at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts.
His personal work blends the style and graphic qualities of hand-drawn 2D animation with the dimensionality and camerawork of 3D animation. His film “The Intruder” (2007), a combination of these 2D and 3D techniques, screened at over 30 festivals worldwide. More recently, he completed “Babayaga” (2011), a film commissioned by conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony Orchestra that screened at the inauguration of Frank Gehry’s latest architectural project, the New World Symphony Hall in Miami.
Alessandro currently works as a Rough Layout Artist at Dreamworks Animation SKG. Prior to that, he worked extensively as a 2D and 3D animator for television commercials and music videos. He has also taught animation as an Adjunct Professor at Loyola Marymount University.
