A 30+ year veteran of the animation industry, Giles has been involved in all levels of producing animation ranging from commercials and series to specials and features. Starting out in the paint and trace department at a small commercial studio, he began the lengthy education of the animation process. Whether as an editor, producer or director, at each stop along the way, he has learned and improved his craft to help make the best films possible. However, working on other people’s projects was never the final goal. The ultimate goal was to take his own ideas and make them into award winning films. This would lead him to open his own small independent studio as a place where he could work and produce his own material.
