An interview with Lina Walde, the director of "Desert Critter", interviewer Kseniia Buzhbetska
"Lina Walde’s work is guided by a freshwater current seeking out a unique path for herself between the shores of experimental and applied art. In “Desert Critters”, she unites the two into something poetic and fundamental to human existence, which can be understood by all ages even though the simplicity of the characters and visuals are intended for a young audience.
""I hope that children dance in the end because there's a very groovy track"" - Lina Wilde.
She has described her newest animation as a parable about the search for one's identity and a story about the friendship between 2 animals, that stay together regardless of their species. The story invites the audiences to reflect upon their identity while being on a beautiful journey through Walde’s world.
Walde is also active in the fields of illustration, cinema curation, motion design, graphic recording, projection mapping, and teaching animation. She is a musician and a sound artist as well as a member of the animation-collective Sticky Frames.
