James McCoy

No better way to kick off the very first episode but with Blizzard Animation’s very own: James McCoy.

James is a Principal Animation Artist that has been in the world of animation for twenty plus years. Seventeen of those years James has been putting in his efforts to help grow the Blizzard Animation Team (aka: Blizzard Cinematics). He’s more than likely worked on one, if not all, of your favorite Blizzard mini-movies.

I had the pleasure of working with James for just under seven years on multiple shows and I can honestly say that James is a spectacular artist, animator, director, supervisor, teacher, and friend. Join me as we speak with James about his start into this profession and his journey along the way.
