Director's Reel: Buddy Zulueta



"Buddy" ZULUETA started his career as traditional animator then supervisor for Marvel TV series before he moved on to directing TVCs. His time in TVCs allowed him to work with major ad agencies around the region and expand his range of 2D styles. Working for both TV series and TVCs exposed him to the creative areas of pre- production; storyboarding, timing, design and layout, including story development. He has taught animation principles and storyboarding at the Institute of Technical Education in Singapore.

Buddy believes a strong narrative, story and character are the keys to entertaining animation.
