About Me

elly stern

Elly Stern (she/her) is a mixed media animator with a BFA in Animation from Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston. She spent her childhood in Tel Aviv and her adolescence in Toronto, and she currently resides in Vancouver. Elly spent 2 years working at Spotted Fawn Productions as a props & set fabricator, puppet maker & wrangler, and secondary animator. Her films have screened at festivals internationally, won numerous awards, and been featured on various blogs and websites.

Elly has a passion for experimental stop motion filmmaking, specializing in mixed media narrative animation, created using repurposed trash. She is inspired by alleyways, trash (treasure) collecting, surrealism in the real world, and the relationship between people and cities. Elly's animations explore the grittier, darker aspects of our existence, and decode the workings of our inner worlds and bodies.

Elly will be open for commissions in Spring 2023. :^)
