I am the one they call Carlyle, no one calls me C Willy I just like the name…reminds me of the heroic whale.
Long story short I’m a Canadian dude enjoying my time and working in animation. Outside of that I like to make pictures, collect nerdy helmets and pet cats.
And if you still want more….
I used to make short animations with sprite sheets in high school but it wasn’t until I went to Capilano’s Commercial Animation program where I got my first real taste of animation. I enjoyed character design and backgrounds but animation was too much fun. It’s a real pain in the ass but a lot of fun. Getting to put life into something is a weird and cool thing to do, a powerful thing, like some sort of god.
After Capilano I was lucky enough to land a layout artist gig on My Little Pony!:Friendship is Magic season 1 and 2. It was a blast. Great crew, awesome storyboards and wonderful writing. Between seasons I was an animator Planet Sheen, the show about Jimmy Newtron’s loudest and most annoying friend. I Met some great people who I would eventually work with on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
I still can’t believe I get to be a legitimate part of creating Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s such a fantastic show to work on. I’ve been with an amazing crew on a very well oiled production. The folks at Nickelodeon are a delight to work with too, so much creativity and passion come from them it’s hard not to be excited about making a great show. I’m currently an Episodic Director on the show, responsible for overseeing half of the season 5 animation before it gets delivered to Nick, as well as having input on some of the amazing renders coming from the lighting/render/comp team.
