VanArts is proud to hear that our animation graduates Scott Eade and Mark Pullyblank are now working at WETA Digital in New Zealand! Scott and Mark both completed studies in 2D and 3D Animation from 2000-2002, and also co-directed the short film “Hollywood Calling” under the Lee Mishkin Filmmaking Scholarship program.

Says Scott of his experience, “I love the fact that you can work at anything you put your mind to and the training that I received from Vanarts really helped me achieve the goals that I’ve set out for! Since graduating from VanArts I’ve had opportunities in many facets of the animation industry. I started as a character and environment modeler at Mainframe Entertainment. After some time in modeling I decided to try a different focus within lighting and compositing at Rainmaker Animation. In time, I found my interest for the storytelling, animation and camera leading me into the position I now have been in for just over two years. As a layout artist my training and experiences include a broad range of film techniques, including storyboarding, composition, cameras, animation, lighting, modeling and so much more. I am currently working as a layout artist at Weta Digital.”

Mark has recently been interviewed on the Vancouver Animation website, where he shares more about his career after VanArts.

Congratulations Guys!
