Bryn Fraker graduated from the California College of the Arts May 2014 with a BFA in Animation. Her first short animated film, Ignite, premiered May 2014. Her interest in stop motion animation and puppet fabrication evolved from her love of creating tiny things and bringing them to life. The stop motion puppets for Ignite are made from aluminum wire armatures, foam, latex, clay and a variety of other mixed media. She is particularly fascinated by creatures, both realistic and stylized.
In 2013, Bryn had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in rural Ireland. Over the course of the semester that she lived there, she created four puppets inspired by Irish mythology and the real-life fairy fort that was just a few hundred yards from her school. She also created a body of large scale conte crayon drawings focusing on a personal sense of identity through the visual of hair.
