After a degree in Visual Communication Design (2002) in Ljubljana, she continued her studies at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Department of Media Design. During her studies in Germany, she made two animated films using the puppet animation technique, which earned remarkable international accolades: Zasukanec (Mate to Measure, 2014) and Liebeskrank (Lovesick, 2007). In Last Minute (2010) Špela collaborated with Swiss director Marina Rosset. In 2013 came Boles, another puppet animation feature; distributed worldwide, it earned over 50 awards and nominations. In 2016 she directed Nighthawk; in cut-out animation, it’s a completely different work from her previous films and has participated in many festivals such as Sundance and Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival, earning remarkable recognition.

For 10 years, Špela has been working as a director and independent producer of animated films with the Finta production company in Ljubljana. Orange is the New Black – Unraveled is her latest work, a funny puppet animation commissioned by Netflix.
