My name is Glen Christie, I have recently completed a Bachelor of Art and Design specialising in 3d Animation at Media Design School in Auckland, New Zealand. I am currently working as an animator at Cirkus in Auckland.
I have enjoyed films, animation and gaming for as long as I can remember. I worked as a qualified welder and decided to study animation when I was 25, to find a creative career.
I studied 2d Animation and worked as a Storyboard artist and Illustrator on several projects, doing a range of things including concept art, storyboarding, animation, modelling, rigging, writing, acting, and directing. I have illustrated a comic book, animated 2d elements for independant games, modelled and animated 3d videos for medical presentations and put together short film pitches to apply for grants.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, films and games, and going to the beach. My dream is to travel the world working as an animator, and to bring my own ideas and stories to life.
