Dante Zaballa BIO
Dante Zaballa is an Argentine Animation Director with a playful, colourful, and “sometimes exquisitely odd” style. His joyful work has a childlike quality and his hand-drawn lines shimmy and shake with playful energy.
Bouncing between Buenos Aires & Berlin, this emerging commercial talent is endlessly inspired by the ordinary every day. Drawing inspiration from almost everything surrounding him, Dante often films these observations and then animates frame by frame over them – turning daily situations into crazy abstract scenes that ooze charm from every frame.
