Hello! I'm Juan Luis Bravo, a story artist and filmmaker. 
I'm currently a storyboard artist at Pure Imagination Studios on an unannounced CG action-adventure show. Before that, I did revisions at Wild Canary Animation, live-action video production at Disney, and post-production at The Product Factory. ​​​​​​​
In my work, I apply my education in live-action filmmaking with the experience of a bilingual upbringing to tell stories about love, friendship, and everyday beauty―Stories with heart are my thing!
I'm currently available for freelance storyboarding.  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
