Joel MacKenzie


GRITTY, FRESH, and FUN. Joel's work has been screened at some of the top festivals in the world and that has opened the door to take his ideas further with clients. Currently he is developing shows with Corus/Teletoon, Sonar/Wildseed, and Boat Rocker media. He also has a short with Nickelodeon, and a bunch of other ideas he is trying to get off the ground. He hopes to own a dog someday and eventually play every video game in the world.

Navigating The World Of Shorts

There is another venue of creativity for animation artists besides the series and feature film world - short films! The art of creating your own short and showing it around the world is often underappreciated. These talented creators and directors will discuss their journey of taking an idea, creating a short, and getting it in front of audiences internationally.
