Maya Erdelyi is a NYC and LA based animator, director and artist. She creates intricate hand-made animations and collages inspired by imaginary worlds, memories, and the unconscious. Shown in various national and international film festivals, galleries and museums, her award-winning animations utilize a hybrid experimental approach to cut-paper stop-motion, puppetry, hand-drawn and computer animation processes. Maya is a 2012 MFA graduate in Experimental Animation from CalArts, and is represented by 6PointMedia, a Hollywood Animation Studio. Personal projects include a new film in the works called “Anyuka”--an animated short documentary partly funded by Fandor. Maya is a 2014-2016 Visiting Faculty member in Animation at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Maya is also the Animation Director at CDN (Children’s Documentary Network) launching in a few months in NYC.
