Diego Akel has been working since 2002 with fine arts, photography and animation as creative producer, director, animator, curator and workshop instructor. Akel is a leading figure in the brazilian animation scene, and his work in the experimental branch is internationally recognized as a reference in the area, with workshops given in South America and Europe, having his films cited in sites such as Colossal, Cartoon Brew, Hypeness and specialized Brazilian publications such as the Filme Cultura magazine.
