Biography:
Wes has contributed to over a dozen feature films since 2003 as an animator for Industrial Light & Magic, Blue Sky Studios, Dreamworks/PDI, and most recently Reel FX. Throughout his animation career, he has worked on a vast array of projects and with different stylistic approaches. His experience has awarded him the opportunity to produce animation from the realistic, physical animation required for Iron Man 2, Terminator Salvation, Star Wars Episode 3, etc.. to the more cartoony, playful animation in Horton Hears a Who, Ice Age 2 & 3 to name a few. As the Directing Animator on Free Birds and the Head of Animation on The Book of Life, Wes discovered a greater passion for sharing his knowledge and experience with other animators and students dedicated to improving their craft.
