George Summers


I am a director and writer of animated short films, with my roots in stop-motion. I've made films for years under my umbrella brand "Studio Suzo", and have always loved in-depth storytelling and rich characters.

I want to collaborate more with others in the future, and branch into other mediums with a focus on storytelling through writing and directing. I wish to enter the independent film industry via festivals - starting with my graduate film: "Out with the Old".
