Today we are featuring the filmmaker Tess Martin. Tess is an independent animator who has worked out of Seattle, WA and the Netherlands. She is also a member of SEAT, Seattle Experimental Animation Team. The Journal of Short Film first encountered Tess’s work on Volume 22 with her animated short A Moment’s Reverie. Later her piece Plain Face was featured on Volume 27. Most recently a new stop-motion animation A Whale Story has been selected as part of The Journal of Short Film Volume 33.
Tess is now living and working in the Netherlands and we are very excited to see the new work she produces.
JSF 33 will be released November of 2014 and you can see A Whale Story as part of that volume. In the meantime check out her other JSF selected films, or visit her website http://www.tessmartinart.com/ for more information.
