Erick Oh

Erick Oh is a Korean animator based in California, USA. His work has been introduced and nominated at the Student Academy Awards, Annecy Animation Festival, Hiroshima Animation Festival, Zagreb Animation Festival, SIGGRAPH, Anima Mundi, Ars Electronica, LACMA Director’s Night, and numerous other film festivals. He spent most of his life in Korea where he started producing a variety of work which blurred the boundaries between media and content. Even though Erick feels most comfortable communicating and interacting with the viewer through animation, he would not consider himself only a film maker. But rather as an artist who continues to expand the definition of animation and art. After receiving his BFA at Seoul National University and his MFA in the UCLA film program, Erick is currently at Pixar Animation Studios.
