How would you define what you do?
I've been a character and vfx animator for many years, working on all everything from feature/vfx films, commercials, tv, games, or what have you. I've been involved in many films from pre-production through final tweaks, working on building cycles, face shapes, conception, rigging.

I’ve worked on television shows in Ottawa, commercials in Montreal, and feature films for Disney and Steven Spielberg for over 20 years. I was retrained in computer animation at Disney. For the last 7 years I have taught computer animation, storyboarding, sculpting, acting and animation history at several colleges in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
How would you define Character Animation?
Usually when I hear character animation, it involves animating a human like character, as opposed to creature animation, or even prop animation. The term character animation has two main parts to it: character and animation.
