Nassos Vakalis has been one of the story pillars at DreamWorks Animation for a dozen years. One of the pioneers of digital storyboards while most in the business were still drawing on paper, Mr. Vakalis has lent his expertise to a wide variety of DWA features -- everything from Flushed Away to Kung Fu Panda to Puss In Boots. ...
And inbetween his DreamWorks Animation assignments, Nassos founded his own company Time Lapse Pictures -- which worked on a variety of European commercials and animated features, as well as the Rugrats theatricals that Klasky-Csupo was turning out.
All in all, Nassos Vakalis has been a busy animation artist, but that should be apparent as you listen to his TAG interview.
