Hi, I'm Anna Lu,

a passionate Stop-motion animator located in Berlin,

who loves to design and build miniature worlds, but also concept all kinds of mixed media formates that combine analogue and digital visuals.


Anna Luisa Schmid, born 1990 in Berlin, grew up as a child of an actor in the world

of the film.

At the age of six she began to work as a voice actress in Berlin and collected

first experiences in stop-motion workshops as a teenager.

After graduating from high school in Berlin, she completed an internship at a

Stop-motion production of the clay animation film “The Hopper” and was a member of

Berlinale Tagesspiegel readers' jury.

She also gained experience as an actress on stage with several

Productions by the Ensemble “Das Durchgedrehte Drama”.

In 2011 she began studying animation at the Babelsberg Film University and

in 2014, alongside her studies, she took over the artistic direction of music video production “Cherry Oh” for Seeed, directed by Jan Koester of Talking Animals.

In 2017 she was artistic director for the student stop-motion short film “The last

Gardener ”directed by Johannes Dreibach.

In 2019 she finished her studies with the graduation film “Innendrin - on the Inside” (release 2021), which was awarded as "best animation" by Toronto international women film festival (TIFF).

Anna Luisa Schmid has been working since 2020 as a freelance animation artist in Berlin under the name “Animationsschmide” and produces music videos and animations.
