Born in Italy, Andrea Cristini approached animation at an early age, experimenting with PowerPoint and rudimental stop motion techniques. Finding his passion, he attended an Arts High School, where he trained in traditional drawing. For his projects, he made comics and did studies in both 3D using Maya and paperless animation using Flash.
When he graduated high school, he began attending Brera Fine Arts Academy to further himself in the study of cinematographic language and storytelling.
Having worked in Italy for a while as a freelance animator, he eventually decided to specialize in traditional animation and attended Vancouver Film School to do so. During the Classical Animation course at VFS, he completed his first animated film, Obsolescence.
