    The Blissful Accidental Death

    Sergiu Negulici was drawing as a kid and his parents took him seriously. While studying sculpture at Bucharest Fine Arts University, he started working in the first post production studio in post ’89 Romania, where he became part of the new wave of digital artists working in advertising. 18 years later he was given the chance to coordinate a small team for part of Anca Damian’s „Magic Mountain” animation feature. His work since focused more on animation movies and The Blissful Accidental Death was his first film, being awarded at festivals like Annecy Animation Festival, CINANIMA, Animateka, Anim’est, Molodist Kiev, Hiroshima Animation Festival, etc. He is currently working on his second short while coordinating a team of young animators in his studio, Reniform Production.
