I have been known to be very anti technical in my approach to animation and my technique hasnt really changed since I started working in the industry over 20 yrs ago. I have animated at Walt Disney Animation Studios for almost 12 years and worked on "Fantasia 2000", The Tin Soldier segment, "Disney's Dinosaur", the characters Kron and Carnataur. I supervised and animated on Theme Park Productions "Magic Lamp", the genie in CG and Mickey's philharmagic, classic characters in CG. I then supervised and animated the character Chicken Little in "Chicken Little". While developing the Witch character for "Rapunzel" aka "Tangled" I also animated on "Meet the Robinsons" and development tests for "Snow Queen" and "American Dog" aka "Bolt". Now 5 years later, I'm a Supervising Animator at Dreamworks and have animated and supervised on "Monsters Versus Aliens", "Skrek Forever After", "Megamind", "Kung Fu Panda 2", "Madagascar 3", production tests for "Me and My Shadow" (Hybrid 2D and CG) and had a blast animating on "The Croods".
