Bobby Ulcar

Senior Technical Director, Pipeline Studios

Bobby Ulcar has been in the animation industry since 2005. Starting as a stop-motion animator and then moving into digital animation, he had a deeper appreciation for the Node View than was reasonable for an animator, so he moved into rigging and is currently a Rigging Supervisor and Senior Technical Director at Pipeline Studios. Bobby has been a proud member of Pipeline Studios for over 14 years now and counting. He has touched almost every 2D production at the studio in the past 10 years and is constantly working on improving processes and innovation.
