Matt Berenty has been drawing and sculpting for most of his life. As a child, he spent hours trying to duplicate characters from his favorite TV shows. But it was when he watched a Tyrannosaurus Rex chase a Jurassic Park Jeep that his passion began taking shape.

Whether directing work for brands such as Popcap, Marvel, Build-A-BearĀ and AT&T, or creating his own projects, like the animated short film Love in the Time of Advertising, he lives to bring characters to life on set and on the computer.

He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He has lived and worked in Los Angeles for more than 18 years.
