Chintis Lundgren is an Estonian-born animator who hit the ground running to huge acclaim with her first film in 2008. She soon after established her own independent animation studio and is currently a founder of Adriatic Animation, a new animation studio based on the coast of Croatia, along with her partner Drasko Ivezic.

Chintis is a self-taught animator and quickly gained attention in the animation world for her quirky music videos and short films featuring a light, absurdist tone along with distinct anthropomorphic characters. Her films (including ‘About the Hard Life of the Barn Swallow’, the music video, ‘I Love your Face’, and the award-winning ‘Life with Herman H. Rott’ and her latest work, ‘Manivald’) have screened at numerous international animation festivals, winning many awards and accolades along the way.
