Animator: Bob Davies

*Birth/Death: * Currently Alive. Birthdate: Unknown

Animator, Supervising Animator, Character Animator.

*Bio Summary:*

*Early Life/Family:*

*Education/Training:*
From what I could uncover with interview with Tony Fucile, he got his break
when they were compiling a team of creative animators of any age to
work on *The Iron Giant*. When they recognized his skill, they promoted him
(along with animator Dean Wellins) to supervising animator.

*Career Outline:*
Warner Bros Feature animation (1996- 1999)
[showed exceptional talent whilst working on *The Iron Giant* and was
promoted to supervising animator for the project.]
Walt Disney Animation Studios (1999-2010)
DreamWorks Animation (2010- 2014)

*Comments on Style:*
Seeing that he was the character animator for Kronk, Bolt, and Prince
Naveen, it is apparent that he seems to excel at the more “animated”
animated characters which I enjoy greatly. He exaggerates enough to get
emotion and some comedic timing but not too much that he completely looses
the essence of the character that he works on.
