Animator Spotlight: Vanessa Cruz
The 10×10 Animation Project was created to celebrate our centennial year by enlisting 10 animators to each create a 10 second piece to represent a decade of design history— the only requirements was that each piece begin and end with the AIGA logo and be under 10 seconds.

Vanessa Cruz currently hangs her professor’s cap at the University of North Florida, where she’s been teaching since 2005. Working in the animation industry for over ten years, she has worked for such studios as 20th Century Fox Television Animation, Film Roman (now Starz Studio), as well as created her own independent films. Her films have been shown internationally and she’s won awards at the Ottawa International Film Festival and Oslo Animation Festival.
