Animation is a really cool world of creativity, excitement and wonderful people in a crazy environment of impossible workloads, truly frightening schedules, unrealistic budgets and irrational changes. Getting a production done on time and on budget is itself an art form. (Wasn’t it Walt Disney who said that his greatest accomplishment was preventing 100 artists from killing each other?)
I’ve been lucky enough to be involved with traditional flat cel 2D, various projects in CG and most recently 3D. I have been an Animation Director, Producer, Art Director, Storyboard Supervisor, Production Artist, Production Designer and Post Production Supervisor… and I enjoyed doing all of it.
Following are examples of what I Directed most recently from “Angelina Ballerina” and “My Little Pony”.
