Video animated short "I met a robot at a ballet once" and "i" by Isabela Dos Santos

"I met a robot at a ballet once" A hand-drawn animated storybook poem about a girl who meets a robot at a ballet and has an existential crisis. Written, Narrated, and Animated by Isabela Dos Santos

"i" A film by Isabela Dos Santos debuting online exclusively in Cartoon Brew's 4th annual Student Animation Festival 2013 Isabela's first-year short at CalArts, a dance/animation film entitled "i", was a regional finalist for the Student Academy Awards. 

Isabela was born in Brazil. She will be graduating from Experimental Animation (BFA) at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in 2014. She began animating in 2009, teaching herself the art form in her spare time while still a high school student who was nerdy about english, physics, and math. She is now a 2011 Young Arts Silver Award winner in Cinematic Arts and a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts. 


Isabela works often with stop motion, for which she makes and moves some very very very small things. She also focuses her efforts on interdisciplinary performances through Young Arts and her own projects, and has a particular obsession with dance and animation. Recently, Isabela also collaborated with choreographer Camille A. Brown on her new work, “Mr. TOL E. RAncE”
