about me

Marcie LaCerte is a Chinese-American animator and art director based in NYC. She is currently a Creative Culture fellow at the Jacob Burns Film Center and is working on a narrative short film.

Her clients include Vox, NPR, Great Big Story, Giphy, and Quartz. Her films have been recognized by 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), and the Light Grey Art Lab Residency.

She is interested in making films that use metaphor, surrealism, and comedy to examine personal experiences and feelings. She is also interested in web-based multimedia art and interactive storytelling (like Twine). In her free time, she enjoys thrift shopping, listening to podcasts, and talking about Shrek.
