My name is Erika Totoro and I am a story artist, stop-motion fabricator, and filmmaker. I’m from Westchester, New York but I am currently living in Savannah, Georgia, pursuing a BFA in animation at SCAD. The stop-motion community here may be small but I want to change that! As the co-founder and president of SCAD’s stop-motion club I make it my goal everyday to spread my enthusiasm for the medium. Growing every day with 350+ members since Winter 2022, I’m so proud of how far we’ve come.
I have always held an aspiration for art and film. If I’m not in the studio, in my free time you can either find me goalkeeping on the soccer field or growing my chocolate addiction baking in a kitchen. From pre-production to post-production, I have a variety of skills that I use to follow my passion of creating stop-motion films and telling stories across all mediums. It is with these skills that I hope to one day pursue filmmaking full-time.
