February 21, 2018 12:45 PM – 1:45 PM
Joy + Noelle is a NY based animation and design duo Joy Buran and Noelle Melody. They are illustrators, animators, and, as it happens, twins. Joy and Noelle studied Media Art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn; their thesis film was their first collaboration. They now direct and animate short films, commercial videos and in 2015, partnered with writer Kelly Sharp, illustrating her children’s books as TRIPLE DOG PRESS.
Joy and Noelle have done animation work for A+E Digital, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, TED, Cartuna, Amazon Studios and Sesame Studios, among others. Joy lives in Queens and Noelle lives in Kingston, NY; they keep rooms in each other’s house and nooks in each other’s brain. Each also keeps an exquisite collection of charming objects and charming pets, from which they draw inspiration.
