About Me

My name is Mayrení and I am a stop motion animator. I’m from the US, living in Mexico.

I recently wrapped up my participation in Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio. Before that I worked on a feature film in the Utah, and I’ve been a part of several short films in Mexico, two of them winners of the Ariel Award for Best Animated Short Film.

Apart from essentially playing with sophisticated toys, one of my favorite things on a production is being surrounded by talented people I admire and learn from.

On the side, I’ve always been drawn to movement and have been a contemporary dance enthusiast and pianist for many years. I believe these hobbies have made me a stronger animator through the understanding of body mechanics, expression and rhythm.
