My name is Jen and welcome to Animation Complex. My goal with this site is to look at animation through a critical and academic lens via writing, podcasts, and videos. I want people to look at animation as the artform it is, and educate them about the various ways it affects and is affected by our culture.

This year will be a little crazy for me as I work towards my MFA in computer animation, so while my more analytical essays are on the backburner, feel free to join me as I document my progress on my animated short film!
