Chris Landreth, director, animator,

B: 1961 in in Hartford, Connecticut

Chris Landreth was a post–graduate student in engineering in the United States with few options for employment. He could work for the American military because no one else could utilize his talents or find work in some unrelated field. What he decided to do was move to Canada. Here he found his way to Alias/Wavefront in Toronto. Within a year he was working on the end, the seven–minute wonder which was nominated for an Academy Award in the animated short film category. His Oscar®-winning animated short Ryan is based on the life of Ryan Larkin, a Canadian animator who produced some of the most influential animated films of his time. Chris Landreth’s filmography begins with his credits as an animator.
