I'm Ian Brauner, a Brooklyn-based animator and director. With over 15 years of experience, my work spans a broad spectrum of commercial projects, film and television visual effects, virtual reality, and video game cinematics.
As a director, I have collaborated with teams of artists around the globe, working both onsite and remotely, leading projects from initial concept and creative development to execution and final production.
My portfolio includes 2017 Oscar-nominated Animated Short Film "Pearl," beloved brands such as Google, Honda and Ralph Lauren as well as well-known names in the world of media from Viacom to Riot Games and Activision.
In addition to animation, I also self-publish my own comics, and am a frequent exhibitor at the MoCCA Arts Festival in NYC. My comics have been included as part of "The Newsstand" exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, and the Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris, France.
Areas of focus include:
- Character animation
- Creative development
- 2D cel animation
