Religatio - Jaime Giraldo

I am a Colombian animator currently living in Canada, where I am finishing a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and starting a new project. I also work in the summer as a Layout/Posing Artist at DHX Media in Vancouver. In 2013 I had the opportunity to attend the Classical Animation Program at Vancouver Film School where I directed my first two shorts Pursuit and Religatio.
