About Tiny Siren
At Tiny Siren Animation, we are dedicated to blending the past with the present, creating stories for modern audiences with traditional hand-drawn animation and nostalgic style.
Our artists draw inspiration from the Golden Age of Animation that took place between the 1930s and 1960s, and the hand-drawn animated movies of the 1990s. We couple this inspiration with stories we believe have gone untold or under explored. What results are movies, short-films, and web-shows that offer viewers unique perspectives they may have not experienced before, but still feel familiar thanks to our nostalgic aesthetics.
We support Tiny Siren's mission with a company culture that is creative, collaborative, and constructive. The artists of Tiny Siren work together, pushing each other to grow as artists and ensuring each project is better than the last.
Founder & Creative Director
Matt Bruneau-Richardson has been drawing for as long as he can remember, and at 15 began making those drawings move when he started teaching himself how to animate. After studying animation at the Art Institute of Boston and New England Institute of Art, Matt got his degree in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College. Now, he blends these two studies together into visual storytelling.
Myriam is an animator/illustrator who's been drawing since elementary school. She studied Media Arts and Animation at The New England Institute of Art, where she bettered her skills and gained numerous and lasting friendships which have helped her be who she is today. Not only does she animate at Tiny Siren, she has also lent her voice to several characters in Tiny Siren productions. She dreams of one day traveling to Korea.
Having been practically raised on the animated television shows of Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel, it's no surprise that David pursued a career in animation and comics. David is an animation alumnus of the New England Institute of Art, where his interest in animation and other forms of storytelling through visual mediums drove him to graduation in 2014.
