“I am interested in the space between abstraction and figuration, where storytelling is freed from the constraints of traditional narrative. My work contemplates microcosms, moments, atmospheres: Close-ups as reflections on the big picture. While my films tend to be without dialogue, they explore the relationship between sound, music and the moving image.”

One of “three of the world’s most exciting young animators” (Dazed and Confused)
One of "Europe's most hotly tipped visual artists" (Metropolis Magazine, Japan)
“Max Hattler is one of my favourite experimental animators” (Directors Notes)
“his personal work is a revelation” (Institute of Contemporary Art, London)
“Current hot potatoe” (Time Out London)
“absorbing and metaphorical visual musings” (Dazed Digital)
“made important contributions to the development of the field of animation” (Camille
Selvon Abrahams, Animae Caribe Festival Director)
“Max is definitely one of the most original, startling animators around with
range of projects, commercial and high art” (Ian Lumsden,
“With a style that blends clever use of audio with simple and metaphorically laden
visuals, his work really just rocks” (Run-Riot)
"... animator Max Hattler ... uses objects, cameras and computers to drag you into
another dimension through shape, colour, movement, sound, politics, pop culture, off-
key on-point observation and kaleidoscopic geometry. His live AV sets are good too."
