Biographie:

Manuela Leuenberger is an animator and film director based in Bern, Switzerland. She co-directed the award winning animated shorts «Ivan’s Need» and «Salmon Men». As a very versatile artist she explores all sorts of animation. She is working with digital hand-drawn animation, stop-motion and pixilation – and animated edible cake. Her work is driven by her curiosity for visual stimulation and the funny, sensual and absurd ways the world can be looked at.
