Instructor Biography

I'm Morr, a NYC based animator/filmmaker. After graduating from the School of Visual Arts (majoring in 3D animation), I started my career as a character animator, freelancing in various studios around town.

Despite loving what I do, I felt like it's not enough to work for other people, and that I HAVE to keep doing my own thing. What started as a YouTube tutorial channel has quickly evolved into the Bloop Animation blog, a platform on which I can share my work with a great audience of animators and creative artists.

On the site, I documented my journey of making LIFT UP (my second animated short) and shared many video tutorials about every step of the making process.

I truly hope that sharing my journey will inspire people to follow their passion. Thanks for visiting and see you around!
