Some stuff.


Recently I spent seven months at the Walt Disney Animation Studio at Burbank in California. After a training I was hired as Story Artist. It was the most amazing experience of my life, it was my dream to work for Disney and I was so excited to see some people and some place that I've seen in Artbooks or in documentaries, I enjoyed so many great moments like the last day of Glen keane at the studio ( very sad moment) ... I met so many nice and talented people. I would like to thanks Paul Briggs who is a great Head of Story at Disney that I respect a lot. I also want to thanks my mentor over there Mark Kennedy who is also a great Head of Story and a very good mentor, I've learnt so many stuff with him, he was always very patient and available for me. I thanks also the other mentors, John Ripa (thanks specially to him), Lissa Treiman and Normand Lemay for the help they gave me during the training.

I also want to thanks The director Don Hall, the Head of Story Joe Mateo and my mentor on production Dave Pimentel for having trusted me and for the help they gave me in my work and sometimes beyond. I've learnt so much over there and I'm so proud to have been part of the Story crew and I would like to thanks all of them to have been so nice and so welcoming with me ( I apologize to them for my awful english...). I wish them the best.

I would like to also thanks all the people in charge of the training who are very professional and very nice, and so funny ( Matt Roberts I'm speaking specially about you !).

I don't know what the futur will be, but I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to see them again.

I did those drawing when I came back from Disney, there is no relationship with my work over there.
