Chris Bailey, Warner Bros Animation, Director & Producer
“I have over 20 years experience in traditional feature animation and CG character animation. Ten of those years was at Disney Feature Animation after which I began to direct short theme park films and CG characters for live action films. I’ve supervised the animation on the films Hocus Pocus, Garfield I and II, X-Men ll, Mighty Joe Young, Alvin and the Chipmunks I and II, Eragon and Hop. Unlike most Animation Supervisors, I work mostly show side and supervises the film’s storyboarding, 2D and 3D animatics in prep, work closely on set with the director and DP blocking out shots and direct the animators in post. I’ve also directed second unit and plate photography.
My TV animation experience began with CLERKS, the Cartoon and I followed that as Executive Producer and Director of KIM POSSIBLE for Disney TV. My most recent notable project was as director of the 3D CG motion ride film Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem for Universal Orlando.”
