Monika Forsberg is a freelance animator, illustrator and
adventurous artist. Of Swedish origins, she moved to the UK
in 1996 to experiment with pencils and paper at Westminster
University, where she produced her first sex themed animated
film “Filth”, a pornographic
animated loop in collaboration with Matthew Small.
While attending The Royal College of Art in 2000 she accidentally
made the film FRANKIE’S CHIMERA, about a man pretending
not to be scared of the dark. The following year she went
on to make THIS IS HARROW, a true story about two girls living
in Harrow and hiding from the TV inspector man.
HIS PASSIONATE BRIDE was commissioned by Channel Four Television
and produced by Animus Films. This satirical take on romance
was BAFTA nominated in 2004 and won the First Prize for best
animation at Granada International Film Festival in 2005 in
the form of a giant ham.
Monika has also created idents for Nickelodeon and is currently
developing the BEST animation
series EVER with Animus Films,
and making a new short film in collaboration with Susie Sparrow
with the support of the Arts Council of England.
