Bio + CV

Sagan Yee is a Toronto-based 2D animator and occasional indie game perpetrator. Her work experience includes TV animation and storyboarding, video game concept art and design, illustration, motion graphics and even machinima. She has participated in numerous panel discussions on animation and games, collaborated on several bizarre interactive projects (one of which ended with the cops showing up), and organized workshops promoting digital media outreach and literacy. 

Currently Sagan is Executive Director of the Hand Eye Society, and a community member of Dames Making Games.
