Today global creative powerhouse Psyop has announced the signing of their latest award-winning talent, Teddy Newton, adding another top tier director to their robust roster.
Newton is a multi-disciplinary animation artist and director who created the Oscar-nominated animated 2010 Pixar short "Day and Night." He’s been integral part of Brad Bird's team, including storyboarding and writing the song "Duck and Cover" for The Iron Giant. He contributed to many story and design concepts in both Incredibles films, including the conception of short film "Jack Jack Attack." In addition, Newton has served as a story and design contributor on other award-winning Pixar films like Ratatouille, WALL-E, and the series of shorts produced alongside the Toy Story franchise. He was a character concept and visual development artist on films such as The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Presto and Up. His original sketches even hang in the hallways of the Pixar headquarters.
Most recently in December, Newton worked alongside the Psyop team on an animated short film "Snow Day" for the popular mobile game Clash of Clans. The short has earned over 27 million views on YouTube so far.
“Having long admired and worked with Psyop on the most recent spot Clashmas, I’m excited to now be a member of this leading creative team,” said Newton.
“We are beyond delighted to welcome Teddy onboard, as we’ve all been a fan of his work for years and so we’re ready to see his genius ideas come to life here at Psyop,” commented Psyop Executive Producer, Amanda Miller. “From watching his award-winning work at Pixar to our recent work together, we can’t wait to see what lies ahead.”
