|South Park and Disney couldn’t be more different, but one talented animator has made his mark at both. Taking his childhood love of drawing to the top of the industry, our August 14th guest will be making a return to the Salon to tell us all about working for both the South Park gang and for Mickey Mouse.
Emmy Award-winning director and producer Ryan Quincy is creator and executive producer of Disney XD’s animated comedy adventure series FUTURE-WORM!
Ryan is best known for his work on the long-running animated series SOUTH PARK, for which he won two Emmy Awards in 2008 and 2009 and was nominated in 2010 and 2011, all for Outstanding Animated Program. He also created IFC’s animated series OUT THERE, for which he also voiced the lead role of Chad. OUT THERE was based on Ryan’s small-town Nebraska roots, and had many autobiographical elements.
Ryans’s career as an animator began on the full-length feature film SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER & UNCUT, and spent twelve years working on the series in various roles including lead animator, animation director, and animation producer.
A native of Holdrege, Nebraska, Ryan – in a weird Hollywood coincidence — actually grew up in the same childhood room as our NCC founder Todd Nelson (his family bought Todd’s family’s home!).
Ryan received his B.A. in English and a graphic design minor at the University of Nebraska Kearney.
Whether you have an interest in animation, producing hit shows or doing voiceover, you won’t want to miss Ryan at the Salon on Monday, August, 14th.
