Who we are?
Martin L'Heureux began his career 20 years ago and accumulated over 30 credits in film, television and video games. As an already established artist in Canada, he extended his passions towards the art of film by working for George Lucas at ILM. In 2000, his talents were honored with a Clio Award for the animation of the Star Wars Pepsi commercials. In 2008, Martin was also nominated for a VES Award as an Animation Director for the IMAX film, Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia. Martin has also worked as an animation lead for several video game titles which includes the highly rated Nintendo, Metroid Prime. His wealth of knowledge in the animation industry and his fascination with the mechanics and physics of human movement, led him to the creation of the reference website. His professional career outside of academia also includes giving animation seminars to schools throughout the world.
