What is your name and your current occupation?
My name is Dan Seddon, and I am a Character Designer currently working for Elliott Animation here in Toronto.

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
Before getting into animation, I didn’t really have any crazy jobs, grocery stores, factories, nothing crazy. I did work for a long time for my dad in his Contact Lens Company making contact lenses, it was the worst and most boring job ever.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of? 

Not so long ago I finished up a big freelance project with Arc Productions (Formerly Starz Animation). It was an incredible opportunity for me working for a really big name (which I don’t think I’m aloud to say), on a really cool new Action-Adventure series that is partnered with Cartoon Network. I also don’t think that I am aloud to go into anymore details about the show, but it was just a really cool project and I cant wait for it to come out so I can share some of my designs.  While at Sheridan College, I also had the chance to work on a short film with some really talented people. We created a really cool film, Electropolis, which went on to win some prizes and festivals. I’ve always been really proud that of what we accomplished together and I will always remember that as one of my most favorite projects I’ve worked on.

 

How did you become interested in animation?
I’ve always been interested in animation, and to be honest I don’t remember a time where I wasn’t interested in animation. From as far back as I can remember, I was always Continue…

What is your name and your current occupation?
Brian Mac Moyer, freelance artist and prop designer

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I worked in a textiles plant, converting colored designs into black negative plates for color printing. I was a Romita’s Raider in the Marvel Bullpen and I operated a porcelain press that separated porcelain clay out of a mud called “slip” used for making electric insulators.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
Megas XLR, I was there from its’ infancy, I helped with the pre-pilot and was hired on as a prop designer when it finally got greenlit by Cartoon Network. That show is the reason I moved to California.  Beavis and Butthead Do America was my first big break. I showed the art director my portfolio and he like what he saw so he had me do a BG test over the weekend. With test finished, I came in on Monday and he wanted to hire me on the spot but the producer said I had to take a layout test. I had no clue how to do layouts but learned while I took the test and got the job.

Where are you from and how did you get into the animation business?
I’m from Up-state NY, 30 minutes east of Rochester in a little town called Palmyra.  I got into animation via the comic industry. John Romita was my supervisor at Marvel Comics and in 1994 the industry was Continue…
