Not Out Yet

• about •

Sif Perlt Savery, originally from Copenhagen, Denmark. Current student at The Animation Workshop and vivid hat-lover.

 

With inspiration from Asian cultures I aspire to bring meaningful animation and passionate storytelling to the eyeballs of a global market. I have a particular interest in the series-format, having previously delved into it with the creation of my independent web-series, Tales of Zale, with just the first episode having already surpassed 50.000 views on YouTube.

I'm curious in nature, and love to explore new possibilities. Most recently this drive led me to Korea, where I through Mike Nguyen's "My Little World" production learned more about heart-felt animation and the Korean animation industry at large.
