Six New Animators Join Animation Mentor
A Canadian native and former zoology student, Robyne Powell listened to her mother and tried her hand at art — and loved it. She continued her newfound passion and eventually studied animation in Vancouver … and her work is on display in Ice Age: The Meltdown , Horton Hears a Who!, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Megamind and Rio. Powell currently works as an animator at DreamWorks Animation.
Industrial Light & Magic
Travis Tohill is another Animation Mentor alumnus returning to campus. He has worked as an animator at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and Tippett Studio. His partial list of film credits includes Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, New Moon, Iron Man 2 and Rango. He is currently animating Cowboys & Aliens for ILM. As a former Animation Mentor student, Tohill brings a unique perspective to the classroom. He is excited to inform students of how the techniques and workflows he learned at Animation Mentor proved vital on his first day as a studio animator.
