BIO

Jayson Thiessen was raised in western Canada on a healthy diet of Looney Tunes, Disney and Muppets. Ever since, he has worked on not only making cartoons, but on improving the medium itself. He trained and started working in the Vancouver animation industry since 1998. Starting out as a classically trained animator, then transitioning to Flash Animation and working his way up to Animation Supervisor on several TV shows, Co Director on “Pucca”, Director on “Peanuts Shorts” and finally Supervising Director on the hit show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”. Focusing on story, character and layout to tell a story, Jayson has improved the flash made cartoon from obvious moving symbols into classical quality animation. In the future he hopes to turn his original ideas and pitches into shows of his own.
