Bernie Roux Joins Bent Image Lab
Roux’s work is accentuated by his love of juxtaposition. His synergistic approach utilizing elements like paper and light/shadow, or tin and wood, gives his projects a unique edge with beautiful results. “I love Bernie’s sense of design,” says Bent Executive Producer Tsui Ling Toomer. “His immense knowledge of animation and his ability to marry different elements together makes his work fresh and original.”
Roux is just as pleased to be joining the Bent team and is interested in expanding his work with a studio that will “get me to think and solve problems in a way that would only be possible with their influence.”
“Bent's reputation as a leading animation studio that shares a similar philosophy of finding new ways and interesting mediums for each job is something that drew me instantly to them,” says Roux.
Roux’s talents are a lock for an exploratory lab such as Bent. The studio’s reputation is built on its creative approach and vast knowledge of anything animation. “Bernie has had a long career of creative problem solving spanning the globe, and proves to be at home with any medium, or mixture of texture and forms,” says Bent Partner and Executive Producer Ray Di Carlo. “Bent is honored and thrilled to have such a like-minded and versatile creative join its excellent team of unique and visionary directors.”
Bent Partner Chel White agrees, “Bernie is such a natural fit for Bent it's almost too easy. His prowess with meshing tactile arts with filmmaking makes him not only a master of his craft but a man after my own heart. It's a real privilege to have him on our roster.”
