Sarina Nihei

Posted by Fabio 6 September 2017

Sarina Nihei is an animation director and illustrator living in Tokyo. Being obsessed with Estonian animation while she was studying graphic design at Tama Art University in Tokyo, she decided to pursue animation.
Having graduated from the Royal College of Art in London, she made a thesis film called ‘Small People with Hats’, which is often regarded as a weird film. Luckily, the film won prizes at festivals around the world including Ottawa, HAFF and British Animation Awards. Specialising in hand-drawn animation, she loves to make surreal stories.
