Christophe Vacher

Visual Development and Art Direction for Disney, Dreamworks, Universal Studios and the animation industry since 1989. Worked in animation studios before joining Disney, where he painted backgrounds for animated films. Relocating to California in 1996, Christophe continued working with Disney, where he painted backgrounds and concept artwork for "Dinosaur", "Hercules," "Tarzan", the Stravinsky Firebird finale for "Fantasia 2000" and "Treasure Planet". Also worked on Dreamworks' "Shark Tale" as concept Artwork and paintings. In 2004 became Art Director, first on a CG animated short movie for Studio Arts in Los Angeles, then for the animated segment of Disney's live action/animation movie "Enchanted", and eventually for the CG feature film "9", produced by Tim Burton and directed by Shane Acker, for which I got an Annie Awards Nomination (the equivalent of the Academy Awards for Animation) in the category "Best Production Design for a Feature Production".
