Guillermo Dupinet

Guillermo Dupinet specializes in character animation and visual narrative.
 At 19 years he started working in a mexican TV station, where he has tried to work at publishing.  After that he has moved to work in a Chicago-based company doing animation for commercial industry. He always wanted to animate characters and since that wasn’t very popular at the time as it is now, he did two short films to push himself to learn. One of them won a price at national level when he was 22 years old.
When he graduated from university he has worked as a freelancer with many clients stretching from Mexico to US, Canada and UK. He has spent time doing films and videogames, then having worked in a great stop-motion company with one of the most renowned stop-motion directors in Mexico: Rene Castillo, he has found his calling.
He jumped into videogames, starting his first AAA videogame in Mexico: Lucha Libre.  It gave him the opportunity for later to work as a Lead Animator for "Amazing Spiderman" from Activision and then the cyber-punk saga of ‘’Deus Ex: Mankind Divided” from Square-Enix as Art director of animation.
After this he decided to come back to his film roots and to work on an animation series: Cracké, now in property and distribution of Disney, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Boomerang and Teletoon.  Finally, he worked as an animator for the film The Star from Sony-Imageworks. Then he moved to a more realistic approach. That was for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp VFX animation.

At the same time he contributed to the cinematic intro of Warhammer Vermitide II as part of Rascals team. After having a go with realism, he came back to the stylized form for the still untitled Playmobile film coming out soon.
