Fawn Veerasunthorn (CCAD, 2005) and her husband Ryan Green (CCAD, 2003) not only have a successful company between them, but can now also call Walt Disney Animation Studios one of their new professional homes.
Veerasunthorn and Green, both Media Studies majors, own and collaborate within Bluefoot Studios. They are independent artists, who are (according to their website) “obsessed with populating the world with cute and quirky story-driven art.”
Bluefoot Studios began in 2004 and was meant to showcase what the pair could do as a full service digital animation studio. From 2004–2006 they worked with clients such as AG Interactive, Stonefly, Plue et Plus, Animation Collective, and more. Bluefoot Studios is now a showcase of their personal work as their jobs with Disney become more demanding.
Veerasunthorn recently accepted a story artist position at Disney. She will be working on an upcoming animated feature film at the studio in Burbank, California. The title has not yet been released to the public, but it will be a CG animated theatrical feature.
“My daily responsibilities are a mix between drawing out storyboards and attending story meetings where the writing takes place,” Veerasunthorn said.
Green has also been working as a story artist at Disney for the past year and a half. While there, he has been working on the Tinker Bell and Planes franchises. He also worked on Pixie Hollow Games, an ABC/Disney television special, which will air in November 2011.
