Ben SandersLead AnimatorPocket Gems

Ben (aka FineSpline) grew up in Oklahoma and studied 3D Animation in Vancouver, Canada. In 2005, after just one year of school, he landed his first job at Blue Sky Studios with the film "Ice Age 2". Following this production, he traveled the world to work on notable projects that include 3 Academy Awards (The Golden Compass, Happy Feet, Avatar), as well as 3 additional nominations (Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Rise of the Apes, Iron Man 2). Taking a more unconventional approach, Ben is known to excel in software efficiency, rather than fine art skills, to achieve results. Ben now resides in San Francisco to pursue the mobile gaming frontier at Pocket Gems.
