“I went to different schools’ open houses and decided that Seneca was the best fit. They had a strong focus on traditional animation in the first two years, and on 3D animation in the third year.”
Baran currently works for Nelvana at Corus Entertainment in Toronto as a texture artist. His work has been featured in various programs including OH NO! It’s an Alien Invasion and Bubble Guppies. Baran found work in his field quickly after graduating from Seneca. He credits this to the extensive training he received in the artistic aspects of animation and the business behind animation. His third-year learning taught him the ins and outs of the animation studio pipeline and the importance of industry networking. These are things he found to be crucial to not only starting a career but also having a long, lasting career in the creative industry.
