Mentor at Animation Mentor
Senior Layout Technical Director at Weta Digital

Mark Pullyblank was born on his birthday, on the dusty flatlands of Alberta, the fourth and final son of a farmer and his lovely bride.

Having little use for farm life, he retreated to his bedroom in his family's double wide mobile home where he pretended he could draw, sing, dance, and fight. Shortly after high school, he began playing guitars and other such things and embarked on a music career that took him from his double wide mobile home and into a 1979 Chev Van. It was around this time that he met his own lovely bride and decided to move from the 1979 Chev Van into the animation industry.

Since then, Mark has worked on a number of films, television shows, and commercials first at Rainmaker Effects, then Frantic Films, and most recently Weta Digital. He spends his leisure time playing with his two babies and his wife, when she lets him.
