Charles Quinniey is an 80’s kid from Buffalo, New York who grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons and eating bowls of sweet cereal. His love for animated movies and shows lead him to pursue a career in animation after graduating from Morehouse College in 2001. Charles studied 3-D animation at the International Academy of Design in Toronto, Ontario and earned a diploma in Computer Animation. A few years later, he was hired as an animator and graphic artist for WKBW Channel 7, an ABC affiliate in Buffalo, New York. After six years of working in news production, Charles began working with the Tri-State Christian Television Network and the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival.
Currently he is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Animation at SCAD, the Savannah College of Art and Design. The Adobe Creative Cloud and Autodesk Maya are the tools that Charles uses to create logos, character designs, motion graphics, and character animations. After obtaining his MFA, Charles hopes to start an animation studio that specializes in creating content for websites and cloud streaming networks. He will also continue to eat bowls of cereal and watch cartoons.
