Ana-Lyssa Mercurius was born in 1996 in St. Catherine, Jamaica. Mercurius utilizes 3D modeling and programming to bring about a unique combination of her skills in contemporary culture. She will receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation and Game Art with a minor in Music from Maine College of Art in 2020. Her interest in the world of animation and programming stems from a love of Walt Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Computer Science. This led her into the development of motion capture skills which she explores in her thesis, “Israel”. Israel will be a two minutes motion capture-based trailer about Mercurius’ identity and truth coming in May 2020. She spends most of her free time watching movies inclusive of inspired films like Avatar, Leap, Avengers, and also playing The Sims 4 video game. She is interested in human connections and the way a person can be affected by enchantments. With this in mind, she endeavors to create within the mind’s eye myths, truths, logics and history culminating into a fascinating and captivating effervescent flow that transcends depths of movement and composition. Mercurius currently resides in Westbrook, Maine.
