Artist – Mack Carruthers


A few months prior to graduation from the Computer Animation
Arts at Durham College in 2007, I was very fortunate to be
hired at Guru Studio to work on Season 3 of Nickelodeon Jr’s
“The Backyardigans” as a junior animator. Finishing the weekly
animation quota as well as final school projects made me lose a
bunch of sleep, but I graduated and have continued to work for
Guru Studio ever since!

My short ‘Snowdrifter’ was awarded the Vimeo Staff Pick badge.
I was also lucky enough to receive just over 150k views in a
day (thanks Reddit)!
Currently, it’s a few thousand shy from 200k. Even though the
view count is rather small compared to other viral videos, it
still floors me think how many people have seen it.

Have you been interviewed elsewhere about your work in
animation?
