Hello! I'm Juan Luis Bravo, a story artist and filmmaker.
I'm currently a storyboard artist at Wild Canary Animation on an unannounced CG action-adventure show and had a past career in live-action production and post-production. I also love sharing what I've learned with mentorship and have served as a mentor for Women in Animation and Story For All.
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!
