About

Gabriella Stefanelli

I was drawn to the animation industry while growing up in a world of Disney animated films.

I gained my skills in traditional animation while I worked towards my Bachelor’s degree at Edinboro University.  As a member of the millennial generation, it was an easy transition to computer animation as I learned the programs that were used in the advertising industry.

In my most recent role, I worked in the Media Services department of a Fortune 500 insurance company.  There, I collaborated with a wide variety of departments to create animations for promotional videos, communications, webcasts, and social media.  The programming for which I created these products for includes new employee orientation training, historical documentation, software training, and corporate advertising for both internal and external communications.

With an absolute obsession of staying on the leading edge.  I continually monitor the industry, keeping up-to-date with all the new software, techniques, and industry trends – not to mention, I can always be found at the premiere showing of the latest animated film!
