Subject:
Angie Glocka

Birth:
(Approximately 60 years old as of 2013)

Occupation/Title:
Character Animator, Stop-Motion and CG

Bio Summary:

Angie was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and lived in an environment where
art was a hobby instead of a career. She took as many courses that could be
considered Animation-Related in the University of Wisconsin and shortly
after moved to San Francisco after learning everything she could.

While in San Francisco, she and her husband got jobs on the *New Gumby* TV
series. This experience built up as she was producing for the show, which
garnered attention from David Bleiman, Ken Pontac, and Henry Sellick. She
was invited to work on *The Nightmare Before Christmas* for this work.

Afterwards the movie finished, she worked on *Bump in the Night*, a TV
series. Five years later she attempted to stop only to be invited to work
on *Toy Story*. After knowing virtually nothing about CG, Angie was trained
as she worked (yet again). After it finished and a future at Pixar unclear
she moved to LA to join up at Disney and worked on *Dinosaur*.
