Robin Linn, Director of Animation Production for the Digital Character Group at Sony Pictures Imageworks has agreed to become the first person from the company to speak at Animex.
Since 1992, Imageworks has been involved in digital production and character creation in films like Spiderman 1 and 2, Stuart Little 1 and 2, The Matrix, Big Fish and The Haunted Mansion. Following on from their Oscar winning success of the amazing animated short The Chubbchubbs, the studio are currently working on new features including their first full CG feature 'Open Season'.
Chris Williams, Festival Director said 'I'm delighted to announce that Imageworks will add to our list of visitors from the major Hollywood studios. The track record of the studio is amazing and I'm sure that the Animex audience will be just as excited as I am about the prospect of seeing Robin Linn give his presentation.'
Robin has been with the studio since 1996 bringing with him a wealth of industry experience which includes working as a sculptor for Hanna Barbera Cartoons in Hollywood.
