Hello, my name is Mario Furmanczyk. I'm orginally from Chicago, Illinois and always dreamed of becoming an animator at Disney Feature.  My favorite movies growing up were Aladdin and Jungle Book. After coming across "The Illusion of Life", my enthusiasm for the art form of animation reached an all time high! I decided to study Character Animation at CALARTS (California Institute of the Arts) and after graduating the program, I was lucky enough to be accepted into the apprenticeship program at Disney Feature Animation, which was a life long dream of mine!

I've now been an animator at Disney Animation Studios for about 11 years now and have had the opportunity to work on some of the biggest animated films in the last decade including Moana, Zootopia, Frozen, Wreck It Ralph 1&2, Big Hero Six, Princess and the Frog and more. 

 Along with working for Disney Animation Studios, another dream of mine was to create a platform for animation artists in which they would be able to engage in creative community exercises, network with other like minded artists, and learn from each other through workshops and critiques. Not every artist has the luxury of going to a school like CALARTS so I wanted to create an environment online that mirrors the culture of a school like that. That has been my main vision behind Animatedbuzz, which has grown and evolved over the years. 

There are a lot of fun plans that I have for the community in the near future.  Since membership to  Animatedbuzz is free, this Patreon account give everyone an opportunity to contribute towards the ongoing development and maintenance fees associated with keeping the site up and running.  Any contribution is greatly appreciated!
