COMPANY PROFILE

Charlie Griak is a self-trained illustrator and animator who has been sharpening his skills in the advertising world over the last 8 years. Since graduating from college in 1999 he has worked professionally as a freelance illustrator, storyboard artist, art director and animator for advertising agencies accross the country. He has also taken time out from his freelance work to study marble and bronze sculpture in Pietrasanta, Italy.

Along with a passion for illustration, Charlie's also has a strong interest in film. He created "Fever", an eight-minute animated film from approximately four thousand of his own hand drawn illustrations. The solo project took three years to create and since then has been screened in several international film festivals. Fever earned a screening in The Palm Spring International Festival of Short Films, which is one of a handful of festivals that qualify short films for Oscar consideration by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
