Ashley Gerst is a 3D, 2D and stop motion animator based out of Brooklyn, NY. She splits herself into thirds: as a freelance animator, adjunct professor of animation, and as an independent filmmaker. Ashley considers herself to be a digital circus performer: a tightrope walker hovering precariously between the commercial arts and fine arts. Her goal is to create fantastical animations that ground their audience in a new kind of reality by revisiting folklroe as a digital, glitterfied, and hand crafted physicality.
