Chris Broeska has always been art focused. He started out as a freelance illustrator while still in high school. He then studied 3D animation at college and was hired out as a remote location demo artist and author by Maxon Computers before finishing his degree. After years of writing tutorials and presenting software to the biggest production companies in the industry, he decided to go back to college for design.
He moved to LA after college and worked at Vital Distraction as an author for animation and texture mapping tutorials. He also worked as an animator on a few commercial spots directed by the artist Neil Adams. He then decided to move to Minneapolis after accepting a position at Hybrid Medical as an animator, learning a lot from his years there about solid direction and visual storytelling.
Chris was then handpicked by the team at FUSE Animation to come on board as an animator there. After a few years he was placed in an executive producer role, helping to plan the approach and strategy of projects. He keeps clients happy and artists on task, gives creative direction, and helps the work take shape.
