When Cam and Benny first met at CalArts, they didn’t know quite what to make of each other. Cam thought Benny was a big ol’ science dork, and Benny thought Cam was another one of those pretentious artist types.
Turns out they were both right.
Yet despite their differences, Cam and Benny realized they were creatively in sync. Soon their debates turned into collaboration, and a rich partnership blossomed that has lasted fourteen years and counting.
Fluent in all mediums of film and animation, and appealing to audiences of every age, Cam and Benny are versatile artists. They are writers, directors, and designers – creators who polish their ideas until they shine.
Cam and Benny just want to make great stories worth telling with amazing people.
Cam was born during a nasty heat wave in Richardson, Texas. He has been drawing ever since he figured out how to use his hands, and in second grade he wrote his first book about an adventurous wombat in fluorescent high-top sneakers named “Mr. Cuzul.” In fourth grade, he got his first taste of celluloid when he starred in an independent feature penned by Pulitzer Prize winning writer, Tracy Letts. Fortunately for Cam, the film was never completed.
Attending the Arts Magnet High School in Dallas, he won accolades for his early work including First Place in Painting at the 1996 Visual Arts Guild Exhibit in Dallas. Cam’s obsessions with art and story collided when he studied animation at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan as well as Calarts. He produced several short films, which screened around the world at festivals like Cinequest, Anima Mundi, and the BBC British Short Film Festival. He has worked in the film industry for the past fourteen years, and his credits include major motion pictures such as Team America: World Police and Emmy-award winning television series like Spongebob SquarePants and Robot Chicken.
Cam’s dream of becoming a published author has come true at long last. But his debut novel, The First Book of Ore: The Foundry’s Edge, is surprisingly wombat-free.
Born in Ottawa, Canada to professional musicians, Benny bucked family tradition to pursue a sensible career in the hard sciences. While studying biopsychology at Oberlin College, he spent countless hours in the lab, carefully analyzing the tiny brains of the African knifefish.
By the time he graduated, he realized that his own brain was consumed not with his research, but with the film he was animating in his spare time. So Benny left the poor fish alone and earned an MFA at CalArts, where he developed a special love for stop-motion, clay, and sand animation. His award-winning film, The ErlKing, screened at Sundance, Annecy, and The New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center. Benny directed the BBC/CBC animated series Lunar Jim and provided the voice for the title character.
Over the past thirteen years, Benny has worked on tons of commercials, music videos, feature films, and TV shows.
