This week’s crew profile is with our amazing background painter, Hallie Wilson!
- When did you become interested in animation and why?
I became interested in animation during my junior year of high school when I realized that there is more to animation than just animating – like background painting! Plus I grew up glued to the TV to watch Nicktoons and Disney movies.
- What was your first job in animation?
My first job was at Fox ADHD. I colored animation on Axe Cop.
- If you could befriend one animated character, who would it be and why?
When I was younger, I really wanted to be friends with Arnold from Hey Arnold! He’s a genuinely great person, super chill, and who wouldn’t want to hang out in his room??
- What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
As cheesy as it sounds, the best advice I’ve been given was that I can pursue anything I set my mind to. Determination, passion, and hard work have gotten me where I am today.
- If you had to eat one kind of food every day for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
This is the hardest question!! I love all food, but I suppose I could be happy with curry.
