Milen drawing in the gardens of the “Casa de Europe”

Milen Vitanov is born 1978 in Prague and raised in Sofia, where he took his first steps into animation while he studied Design for Children Toys at the Art Academy. He spent many days and nights drawing on his first self-made light box. In Year 2000 Milen moved to Germany looking for better opportunity to become an animator. In 2007 he graduated in Animation from the University of Film and Television “Konrad Wolf” in Potsdam-Babelsberg. In those years Milen committed himself to the alchemy of 2D/3D mixtures. With a background as classical 2D animator (with big influence from Chuck Jones, Bruno Bozzetto and Studio Ghibli) Milen started to developed bigger and bigger interest for the new opportunities of the contemporary animation technologies. His graduation short “My Happy End” is a mixture of 2D, stop motion and 3D techniques, it has participated in many international festivals and received numerous prestigious awards.

In 2009 together with a group of fellow university-graduates Milen co-founded the Talking Animals Animation Studio in Berlin. Since then he is developing commercial projects as well as short movies, he is animating in 3D and 2D pushing the boundaries of those techniques and trying to mix them. In the following years he realized tree more short movies: “Rising Hope” (2012), “Natural Novel in 8 Chapters” (2015) and “Bango Vassil” (2016). Currently Milen is working on a children short going to be finished at the end of 2017.
