Jordan Bruner YG11
- Current Location: Brooklyn
- Studio: Passion Pictures NYC/Strange Beast
Brought up by a painter and a carpenter in Virginia Beach, VA, Jordan seemed destined for a future in fine arts. Lucky for the animation world, Jordan honed her skills in the medium during her studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. Mythology, travel, and surprising narratives make Jordan’s work unique, while her illustration style gives her commercials, music videos, and short films a strong sense of voice. Currently based in Brooklyn, New York, Jordan has worked with clients including Linda McCartney Foods and Etsy, collaborated with bands ranging from the Mountain Goats to Paramore, and shown her short films in festivals all around the world. In amongst creating 2D and Stop Frame animations, Jordan finds time to paint, collect hologram paintings, and be part of a bowling team. She wishes she had a mascot, so please get in contact if you’d like to apply for the position.

Project 2 of 3
The Leaf Woman and the Centaur: Episode One
A stop-motion animated film that looks to reconcile a set of creation myths and re-establish the act of experiencing the story as their central component. In the same way Paradise Lost articulated the felix culpa (beneficial fall of man) within the Biblical beginnings, or Dante’s Inferno explored our ethical and spiritual scaffolding, The Leaf Woman and the Centaur uses the same basic tropes present in every creation myth to emphasize the value of an ancient experience that died with the cold logic of words.
