About Me

I am Mayrení, a stop motion character animator from the US, living in Mexico.

I recently worked in Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio. Before that I worked on Saurus City (in post-production) 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 animating, one of my favorite things on the job 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.
