Additional Information

Katalin Egely graduated in Animation in 2013 from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary. Besides short films, credits, and animated scenes for movies, her focus is primarily on making music videos. Music videos are especially inspiring for her because instead of narrative story-telling she can create visual poetry based on associative images. Katalin also likes to work on animated documentary films because with animation it's possible to express the more subjective parts of a narrative. Her work has earned awards and honors from festivals all around the world.
