Born and raised in Mexico, Cristina Ertze started her career as an animator in
California after graduating from a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Arts and
Animation (1998) from the Savannah College of Art and Design. A successful
internship during her final year, led to an invitation to become head animation
artist and character designer for Harvest Moon Entertainment, where she
developed an animated TV series and illustrated story books based on the
original concept by Steven Sharples. During this time, Cristina also worked for
several clients and studios in the Los Angeles area as a freelance artist and
In 2001 she moved back to Mexico to become part of one of Latin America’s
largest visual effects studios, Ollin/Studio, in the 3D animation and Visual
Effects team. After nearly five years at Ollin, and having risen to the senior
position in her department, she was awarded two different Scholarships, both
by the British Council and the Mexican ministry of Culture to study a Masters
in Film and TV at Edinburgh College of Art. She graduated top in her class
and is now dedicated full-time to establishing and developing BitterBlue, an

Film synopsis: 
Four people awake in a derelict house with no memory of who they are or why they are there. All they know is that tonight, when they fall asleep they will forget everything again, so they have only a few hours to find out something – anything – about what or who is doing this to them. As they journey through a desolate, abandoned landscape they come to realise that this may all have happened before. And that they may be their own enemies. Blank is a existential, psychological thriller which explores the cycle of violence and retribution which comes from the failure to remember the lessons of the past. The film is inspired by Milan Kundera’s quote “the struggle of freedom against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting”. A post-apocalyptic thriller about suspicion, mistrust and fear which leads to a shocking conclusion, the film is a political parable of the dangers of forgetting lessons and repeating mistakes.
