Paul Hunt

With 20 years of Film and Television experience, Paul has a wide range of credits to his name. Starting his career as an Animator, he then moved into Special FX Supervision, Studio Management, Directing/Producing and Series development.

His work has taken him to some of the most prestigious studios worldwide. After a stint in the commercial industry in both Toronto and London, England, Paul moved to California, joining Lucasfilm, (Industrial Light and Magic) in the initial development of its CGI department. There, Paul worked on such landmark films as "The Mask", "Jumanji" and "Dragonheart". Paul's work on "The Mask" was nominated for an Oscar in the category of "Best Special Effects".

Paul then went on to work closely with Peter Jackson at Weta Digital in New Zealand for the feature "The Frighteners" and on early development and consultancy for "The Lord of the Rings".

In 1997 Paul relocated to Toronto where he managed the Disney Toronto CGI department, overseeing its growth from start up to an efficient production house. For the past eight years Paul has continued to direct animation, supervise studio departments and develop intellectual properties.


Bruce Kalish (E.P. Mudpit) October 11, 2011:

" Paul was my Director on the ground breaking Teletoon's project, MUDPIT. Not only did Paul deliver above and beyond any of our expectations as an animation director, he was also a vital part of crafting story and character for the entire series. Paul is a hands on director who is an absolute pleasure to be in the trenches with. Simply put, there is none better."

~ Bruce Kalish, Excutive Producer, Cookie Jar Entertainment, managed Paul indirectly at Cookiejar
