Todd Elliott has over 25 years of experience in the animation industry. Immediately after college, he worked as a production assistant with many of his childhood heroes on ABC's Muppets Tonight. However, as much as he loved The Muppets, he always knew his true passion was animation. He earned first big break in 1996 as an assistant animator on Space Jam and he never looked back. With over 15 film credits from Tippett Studio, Rhythm & Hues, Sony Pictures Animation, and a portfolio of freelance work, including Emmy award winning Arrested Development, he has found his home at Disney's Blue Sky Studios. Some of the more notable movies Todd has contributed to are Hotel Transylvania, Epic, Ice Age: Collision Course, Rio 2, The Peanuts Movie, Ferdinand, Spies In Disguise and he is currently animating on Nimona. Todd now looks forward to sharing his knowledge with students and artists interested in discovering all that animation has to offer.
