I've been animating professionally for
over 16 years at a variety of studios.
I've supervised and mentored animators in multiple countries, on a couple of continents,
and delivered projects for feature films, games, rides, commercials and episodic series.
I enjoy working on animated projects
that celebrate the good and the true,
the heroic and the hilarious.
Somebody like Randy who can see a tug-of-war between competing ideas and get them pulling in the same direction is what every production needs.
Head of Character Animation
Randy very quickly became a valued member of the Blue Sky Studios Animation team. He had great ideas, with a strong sense of posing and timing. He also fit in well with the crew, becoming a strong collaborator with those around him.
Not only is he a skilled animator he's also a talented and well liked department lead. His creative insights and touches of humour were invaluable to our latest feature project. I look forward to working with Randy again in the near future.

I would work with Randy again in a heartbeat.
He’s the man you want on the floor-- and if you need a lead or animation director he will blow you away with his natural leadership ability.
Randy is highly capable of working to a deadline...
He is an exceptional Supervisor and I could not recommend him more as an asset to any team.
