BIOGRAPHY

Borja Montoro

BorjaBorja Montoro was born in Madrid, Spain where he studied Law at the University but never made a career out of it. Instead he picked up his boyhood love for drawing and continued that. Now with almost 30 years of experience in the animation industry, Borja is one of the most sought after character animators and character designers.

Borja’s career has taken him around the world, working with the very best in animation. First to Ireland where he worked with Bluth Studios as an animator on All Dogs go to Heaven II.

Then to Paris with Walt Disney Feature Animation France where he worked on such major features such as Hercules, The Emperor’s New Groove and other things like The Jungle Book II or The Lion King director Roger Aller’s Academy Award nominated short, The Little Match Girl. While in Paris, Borja was part of the team who animated the character of adult Tarzan under Glen Keane’s direct supervision. This is when he really learned how to draw. Then it was back to Madrid where he spent several years working at The Sergio Pablos Animation Studio, aka The SPA Studios, both as character animator and visual development/character designer. During that period of time, Borja made some of the Blue Sky’s Rio character designs.

Nowadays, Borja is a kind of Jack of all trades... gun for hire. He has worked as a character designer for Warner Bros. upcoming feature Smallfoot. Sony Pictures’ TV Special Smurfy Hollow, Dreamworks TV Animation character designs on Puss in Boots. Character designer for Illumination Mac-Guff on their upcoming Despicable Me 3. Paramount Animation as character designer on several yet undisclosed projects. And as a character designer for the Walt Disney Animation Studios upcoming features Zootopia and Moana.

Borja continues to live and work in Madrid, with his lovely wife and six kids.
