Brian P. Dean

I was born and raised in Connecticut, and attended college at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. During my junior year of college, I had the incredible opportunity to study at American University in Washington D.C. After college I worked on small projects doing a wide range of things including compositing, 2D character design, and illustration. My career in animation took off when I was given an amazing opportunity to join Blue Sky Studios, where I worked on my first feature film, Robots.

Work has allowed me to experience life in lots of places -- New York, Connecticut, California, Nevada, and Vancouver, Canada. I've worked with five different studios on seventeen animated features and three episodic series.

My passion for storytelling extends beyond my day job, as I'm always looking for other creative outlets with photography, videos and various other personal projects.

Recently, I joined forces with friend and entrepreneur Kevin Koperski to form Amulet Studios, where we aspire to follow our dream to someday bring our own stories to life using the Unreal game engine.
