Animation Instructor

Amelia Tsai is part storyboard artist, part biological research scientist, and 100% storytelling enthusiast. She studied Molecular Environmental Biology and Fine Arts at the University of California Berkeley, where she was head instructor for a class on animation pre-production for two years. Amelia herself was first exposed to animation during a high school summer program at CalArts, and since then she's hoped to inspire other youth to explore storytelling mediums. Her interest in the intersection of visual storytelling in a scientific context has led her to work for the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology in Berkeley, the NMMBA research center in Taiwan, and local wildlife hospitals as an illustrator and storyboard artist on top of research work.
