Sally Cruikshank, animator, filmmaker, and early Internet developer, has never been one to neglect the possibilities of the imagination. This is why she is responsible for some of the most vibrant and extraordinary worlds ever put to film.
From her award-winning independent shorts to her animated openers for feature films and beyond, Cruikshank takes illustration and spins it into world-building, creating lush, dynamic environments where the laws of our physical universe are bent, broken, and made new, where anything and everything can open its eyes, grow a mouth, and talk back.
In our two-part interview with Sally Cruikshank, we talk cartoons, animating for film and commercials, collaborating with Danny Elfman and Sesame Street, and more. Check it out on Art of the Title.
