Running an animation team is always a challenge. And when you have to take care of everything from hiring to giving feedback to the artists, all remotely, then it becomes a real adventure.

And thanks to being part of this adventure I have learned a lot of things about how to survive in these kinds of situations. And most importantly, I've been able to delve into the human side of a big animation production.

I would like to tell you my experience about how communication with the artists is the basis of everything, and how I learned to maintain a constant and direct workflow despite the fact that we are hundreds, even thousands of kilometres apart.

With more than 15 years of experience in the animation industry, Christian has worked with all kinds of directors and supervisors and has the great fortune to have learned from both the good and the bad. The first film he worked on as an animator was Planet 51 and the last one was Super Mario Bros. However, one of the films he remembers most fondly is Mortadelo y Filemón with Javier Fesser.

He currently focuses his career on directing and supervision, but he never stops animating, because that's what keeps an artist connected to his industry.
