Sole proprietor of Killerjellybean Animation
Project Director/Guest Lecturer, Multimedia Studies at Northeastern University
Dana Boadway has been working for nearly a decade in this crazy biz, and previously had a dozen or so years of acting training (including university-level, and professional film and television work), and 20 years of dance training. Dana left Ryerson University in Toronto part way through her acting major because she saw Toy Story and knew that would be the best acting gig EVER. Dana switched gears (and schools), and completed an art major, followed up by graduate education in new media design and computer animation at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario.
Since Dana got into animation, she has worked on games, commercials, television shows, DVD movies, and feature films in Toronto, New York City, Montreal and India. Dana was also honored to participate in the Computer Animation Festival for SIGGRAPH 2006, as assistant producer, and in creating the opening credits animation for its famed Electronic Theater.
Currently, Dana is teaching performance and animation skills for Animation Mentor, directing a short animated film, freelancing, and teaching at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
