Character animator


Hi, my name is Rishi Kaul. I am a Character Animator with an experience of about eleven years. I currently live and work in Vancouver, Canada.

Having grown up, fascinated by Hollywood flicks and obsessed with video games; animating characters seemed inevitable to me. So, after graduating in Accounting and a Diploma in Digital Media, I decided to pursue my passion and moved to Canada, where I further studied Film Design and Animation. 

Over the past few years, I have worked on numerous features, television series and video games. My past experiences include animating titles such as Surfs Up 2, Sausage Party, Mortal Kombat X, and Star Wars - The Clone Wars.

As a natural storyteller, I spend most of my energy infusing emotions into still characters and bringing them to life. I am an avid photographer, a film connoisseur and a travel enthusiast who loves exploring and observing new territories and cultures.
