  • Brandon is an incredibly talented animator with an aptitude for mentoring. I was just starting my career when we worked together, and I learned so much every day while sitting across from him. In addition to producing top-quality animation, Brandon also used his skills to develop our motion-capture pipeline and create tools that improved our team’s efficiency. He is always glad to help his teammates with creative and technical challenges, and we still share tips even now that we’ve moved to other companies.
