Zander Awbrey

I’m a storyboard artist. I love drawing action scenes with dynamic angles and fun characters. Drawing is my passion, but I especially love to see when my contribution to a project helps to make a great final product.



Sam Besa

I have been interested in art & media for as long as I can remember, and it was while watching a Pixar movie that I decided I wanted to try to pursue a career in animation. As I gained experience in background painting, I found that I became more interested in the art of environment design as well as background painting itself.

Sonia Gutierrez

My name is Sonia Gutierrez, I love the power of expression the medium of 3D modelling is capable of. The ability to not only bring ideas to life but also give them personality and character through texturing.




Juan Felipe Hernandez

Hello, my name is Juan Felipe Hernandez and I’m from Colombia. Before coming to Canada I was working on post production and filmmaking but I always had a soft spot for animation and video games. My main focus is in 3d modelling and texturing. I like modelling and texturing because it allows me to create worlds, characters, and objects that go beyond what is possible in the real world. I also love the endless possibilities that CGI can offer. I am a technical person so I find 3D animation has a good combination between technique and creativity.
