Juani’s passion has always been sport and drawing. When he was younger, if he wasn’t running or playing tennis he was watching cartoons. You name it, Juani has watched it – Looney Toons, Transformers, Thundercats, Disney, anime, and the list goes on! This was great preparation for the incredible journey that saw Juani leave his home town of Buenos Aires and move to 7 different countries, study at some very prestigious animation schools and work at over 15 animation studios.
Juani has been a character animator for over a decade now and has spent the last five at Weta Digital. His credits include Tintin, X-Men first class, Avengers, Iron Man 3, The Hobbit, Wolverine, The Man of Steel and Jurassic World. He has animated pretty much anything you could ever imagine.
Juani gets a great deal of satisfaction from working with people who inspire him and show him that it is always possible to push oneself further to achieve one’s dreams. Juani still enjoys running and tennis but more than anything he loves animating and passing on his knowledge and enthusiasm to others.
