CASO is excited to invite you to meet Pixar's Supervising Animator
Mike started working at Pixar Animation Studios in September 2000 where he showcased his considerable animation skills in characters from a number of Pixar’s acclaimed feature films, including Monsters, Inc., the Academy Award-winning features such as Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Up. Venturini is currently working on Disney•Pixar’s
Toy Story 3, scheduled for release on June 18, 2010.
Prior to Pixar, Mike was a 2D animator at Warner Bros, working on a variety of films including Space Jam, The Iron Giant and Osmosis Jones. He also spent some time at DreamWorks where he animated on Road to El Dorado. At a young age Mike was already a big fan of the Goofy shorts, Masters of the Universe and the classically animated Disney films in general. But it was only after seeing a Disney special about how people made cartoons by drawing all day, that Mike decided to pursue a career in animation.
Raised in Paso Robles, California, Mike graduated from the Vancouver School of Animation (VanArts) in Vancouver, BC in 1995.
Ricardo has over ten animated feature films to his credit, such as Monsters Inc. and The Incredibles (Pixar), The Iron Giant (Warner Bros.) and Horton Hears a Who (Blue Sky Studios) as an animator, story artist and head of story.
Friends and collaborators for years, they will cover Mike’s artistic work and experience, paired with some shared stories. Q&A session to follow.
