What is your name and your current occupation?
My name is Amit Tishler. Aside from being a freelance super-villain I’m currently working on a couple of projects: one as an animator for Hallmark’s new platform: “Feeln'” on a soon to be announced original series and one as an art director for a small team on a comic book called “Tales of Lyla” for 10 Forward Productions, Inc.
What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?Aside for the current project I’ve been working on, which I am proud of but unfortunately cannot name, I recently worked in the Hothouse Productions animation team for Adult Swim’s “Mr. Pickles”, which I was very proud to take part in. The product is awesome and the studio and its team are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. Watch this show people! Â Another notable project is a music video I co-directed with super-artist Luke Ellison (http://lukeellison.com) for the metal band “Menace”, led by Mitch Harris from the band Napalm Death. I’ve never had a business meeting in the backstage area of a Cannibal Corpse/Napalm Death concert up until that point. As a devoted metal fan I’d say that’s a note worthy achievement.

I’m from Tel Aviv, Israel. I was aiming for this business since I was 12 years old. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in animation from Bezalel- Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem in 2008. I then worked as an animator for Continue reading
