Daniel St. Pierre
BOARD OF ADVISORS
Dan has a varied history in the animation industry. He began as an assistant layout artist at Filmation Studios. Between 1981 and 1989, Dan worked as a storyboard artist, layout artist, background painter and animator on many hit television series (e.g., “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids,” “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” and “The Real Ghostbusters”).
Dan made the switch to feature animation when he was hired by The Walt Disney Company as a layout artist on “The Little Mermaid.” Over the next 15 years, Dan supervised the design work for many of Disney's blockbuster films and ultimately art directed Disney’s animated classic, "Tarzan," a film that garnered the Academy Award in Science and Technology for the acclaimed ‘Deep Canvas’ process for which Dan received an “Annie” nomination for art direction.
Following his tenure at Disney, Dan supervised motion picture development at DreamWorks Animation and handled production design on the hit film “Shark Tale.” His directing debut came when IDT Entertainment hired him to assist with the completion of Christopher Reeve’s animated film “Everyone’s Hero.”
In addition to consulting for animation and live-action films, Dan also served as co-director and art director for “Quantum Quest,” a CG movie presented by Digimax, Inc. and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Dan also recently served as director and production designer of Summertime Entertainment’s “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return,” which was released theatrically in the U.S. in May 2014.
