Micah Chambers-Goldberg, known for his unique ability to manifest whimsical imagination and fantastical imagery, is a versatile and accomplished artist in Animation, Illustration, Film, and Fine Art.
While Micah conveys the wondrous beauty within the ridiculous and supernatural, he maintains an authenticity in all forms of his artistic expression. His work is at once fresh and absorbing. His most recent film project is Who Stole the Mona Lisa?, an animated short, commissioned by Astral Artists which premiered at the Kimmel Center for The Philadelphia International Festival Of The Arts. Peter Dobrin of The Philadelphia Inquirer called the program “…A Triumph”. This comes on the heels of Things That Go Bump in the Night, a live-action/stop-motion animated music video for Tommy Space and the Alchemists. He has also completed illustrations for the children's book, The Princess and the Peanut (published release in 2011).
Micah, who currently resides in Los Angeles, received his BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. During his time at UARTS, Micah not only interned at Dreamworks Feauture Animation Studios but also completed his thesis film, Brain Juice, which took "Best in Show" and was well received in film festivals all over the world. Upon Micah's relocation to Los Angeles, he spent several years painting live, on-stage, for Def Poetry Jam poets and musicians, as well as illustrating published children's books such as Stone Soup and Even Superheroes Get Diabetes. He also designed toys and showroom environments for JAKKS Pacific, the third largest toy company in the U.S. Most recently, Micah wrote and directed an award-winning live-action short film, The Lifter Upper, which has traveled the film festival circuit and attracted much attention and critical acclaim.
Now, as a renowned filmmaker, animator, illustrator, and fine artist, Micah Chambers-Goldberg continues to inspire his audience to see life in a broader spectrum of color and possibility.
