NEW YORK CITY — Creative animation and design studio Lobo (https://lobo.cx) has added director of animation Isabela (Isa) Littger to its roster for global representation. Her work for major brands spans animation, illustration, character concepts and design.
Most recently, Littger directed Wonder Tower, an animated short for Children’s Hospital Foundation in celebration of the new structure built in Richmond, VA. She worked closely with the foundation and agency Markham Yard to set the hospital stage as a safe and homey destination for children undergoing short- and long-term pediatric care.
After attending the Florida-based Ringling College of Art and Design, where she earned a Fine Arts Bachelor's degree in computer animation, Littger held storyboarding and concept art posts with True Motion Studios, as well as Lobo. She earned her Master’s a Gobelins l'école de l'image in Paris in character animation and animated filmmaking. While attending Gobelins, she continued freelancing as a concept artist and storyboarder for Lobo, among other studios, and interned at French game studio Pretty Simple as a 3D character animator. She reunited with Lobo following her degree as a freelancer first, before signing on as a full-time director.
“We have had the pleasure of working with Isa during her time at Gobelins and couldn’t be more excited to continue our collaboration,” says Logo co-founder Mateus de Paula Santos. “She’s an extraordinary talent that we’re lucky to have as part of the Lobo team.”
“In my opinion, animation is the most extraordinary of arts,” says Littger, “a magical way to materialize our thoughts, dreams and feelings. Due to this passion, I am currently working on an original series called Sybil and Her Past Lives, which got selected in the Annecy Mifa Pitches original series of 2020. This wouldn’t have been possible without Lobo’s help, as they played a huge role.”
