about me

Marcie LaCerte is a mixed Chinese-American animation director and art director based in NYC, originally from Minnesota. She is currently in production on a ten-minute animated film produced through the Creative Culture Fellowship at the Jacob Burns Film Center.

She works as a motion graphics designer in journalism, and her clients include Vox, PBS, NPR, Quartz, and Scientific American. Her films have been recognized by The New Yorker, Vimeo Staff Picks, Ottawa International Animation Festival, GLAS, AFI Docs, and more. She has given talks at the CalArts Experimental Animation program, the Living Room Light Exchange (New York), Bethany Arts Community, and the Light Grey Art Lab Residency.

She is interested in making personal films that use humor, surrealism, and metaphor to explore themes of alienation, identity, and memory. Beyond film, she is also interested in interactive multimedia art. In her free time, she enjoys thrift shopping, listening to podcasts, designing websites for friends, and talking about Shrek.
