The Teacher

Andre Dias 

As a Brazilian 2D animator, I find immense joy in breathing life into characters and elements through meticulous frame-by-frame animation.
Over the course of more than 10 years, my journey has been a remarkable one, filled with collaborations with prestigious studios and iconic brands like Disney, Star Trek, FX, and Nickelodeon.
Each project I've been a part of, whether it's crafting enchanting 2D effects or bringing characters to life, has been a unique and fulfilling experience.

Through the universal language of animation, my aspiration is to touch lives across the globe, crafting narratives that resonate with people everywhere.
