Filmmaker Dan Scanlon

Smith, the Columbus cartoonist greatest-regarded for the comic reserve “Bone,” 1st met Scanlon more than two decades ago. In the late 1990s, Scanlon, then a current graduate of the Columbus Faculty of Art & Layout, went to work for Character Builders, a now-defunct animation studio that had been co-established by Smith.

By the early 2000s, Scanlon had identified his way to Pixar Animation Studios in California, the place he has worked as a storyboard artist, member of the senior resourceful workforce and, most just lately, the co-author and director of the hit computer system-animated attribute “Onward” — just one of 5 movies nominated for finest animated element film at this year’s Oscars. © All rights reserved. | Newsphere by AF themes.
