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 smack dab in the middle of 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 story about an adventurous wombat in fluorescent high-top sneakers named Mr. Cuzul.
Cam attended the Arts Magnet High School in Dallas, winning accolades for his early work including First Place in Painting at the 1996 Visual Arts Guild Exhibit in Dallas. His obsessions with art and story collided when he discovered animation at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
Cam completed his studies at CalArts and made several short films, which screened at festivals around the world including Cinequest, Anima Mundi, and the BBC Short Film Festival. He has worked on major motion pictures and Emmy-award winning television series for the past thirteen years.
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.
