We're excited to introduce Joe Castillon! He is currently working with us on a client's project with a team of animators. We had the chance to sit down with Joe to learn more about what makes him so awesome.
Joe grew up in the "Windy City of Chicago, Illinois". He started drawing at a very young age and has always been inspired by the art and technicality of games, tv commercials, and movies, especially "Toy Story". He had laid out his life plan to become an animator very early on and didn't stop until he followed that dream through!
He attended Illinois Institute of Art to pursue a degree in Media Arts & Animation, and shortly thereafter Joe moved to Pasadena, California! Though this may not be his final destination, it gave him the opportunity to work on his first feature length animation at Asylum Entertainment and opened the do to many freelance positions, including Eric Miller Animation Studios!
Sketching at cafe's, attending animation and gaming conventions, such as E3, and the many people he meets at the local food kitchens he volunteers his time in are all inspirations for Joe. He's excited to be able to make it as a creative, doing the voice overs and animations for others to watch, and hopes he can spread the word that you can have a job doing what you love with strong work ethics and a positive mindset!
