Andrew Stanton

Andrew Stanton is a film director, screenwriter, producer, and voice actor. He was born on December 3, 1963 in Rockport, MA.
Stanton is one of the main driving forces behind computer animation powerhouse Pixar Studios, and his contributions to such modern animated classics as TOY STORY and FINDING NEMO are second only to that of studio founder John Lasseter.  From director (FINDING NEMO) to producer (MONSTERS, INC.)  to story artist (TOY STORY and A BUG's LIFE) and frequent voice actor (his voice can be heard in some capacity in near every Pixar production) ... Stanton received his BFA in character animation from the California Institute of the Arts before working as an animator for Kroyer Films in the 1980s ...  Stanton also worked as a writer for animation legend Ralph Bakshi's MIGHTY MOUSE, THE NEW ADVENTURES. In 1990, the talented writer/animator became the second animator to join Lasseter's  fledgling Pixar Studios. (Jason Buchanan/Rovi, Fandago)
