I have always followed the work of Colin, since he was Director of the acclaimed Sintel. But when I tried to contact him for the interview, I was not very confident that I would get an interview.

To my surprise he agreed and went further than I expected on it. In online conversations we had, Colin was very polite and considerate, characteristics of a true lover of art.

I could understand why Colin is now at Pixar, one of the largest art world.

Colin, you say you are lucky, but in my opinion is because you deserve it!




  1. I have followed Colin's work since he was 15-16 years old, through his short films published on his website. I have been impressed from the beginning by his high quality SFX, and I always knew he will do great things ! His hilarious short movie "Suburban Plight" has been imho an important step. I am very happy for him. His hard work and passion leaded him to this well desserved place ! That's not only luck ! Best regards, Colin !

  2. I still can't believe the dude's working at Pixar now.  :D  It's amazing to watch someone go from a kid who likes fooling around with Blender to being a guy at SCAD making waves in getting people's attention to being a director of Blender's Sintel to being someone who now works at Pixar.  Next thing we know, he'll be directing a major Hollywood animated or live-action film before long!  Way to go, Colin!
