creating life, frame by frame

My name is Lara Mae Vitanzo. I'm a freelance animator and character designer who specializes in narrative animated film and is proficient in commercial motion graphics. I earned my BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), WI with an animation major.

The dream is and always has been to create inspiring stories with appealing visuals, whether in a 5 second short or a full length feature. Every project is an exciting new adventure full of creative problems to tackle. Let’s make something cool together!
