John Velazquez attended the School of Visual Arts in New York. His career started in commercials at places like RhinoFX and then moved on to full character animation at Nickelodeon. He eventually found his way to the west coast where he started work on his first feature film at Luma pictures. He then went freelance, which took him into other aspects of animation involving games and music videos. It has also led him to travel all over the world to such places as Europe and Canada. John currently resides in Los Angeles where he is working on one of his true loves in 3D, which encompasses all he has learned over the years: previs animation.
