Animation has always been a passion of mine — I Love it!
Starting with nothing and getting to breath life into it and make it tug at your emotions.
It's something magical
My name is Danny Garnett. I was born and raised in Amish country, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I've been interested in animation ever since I can remember. Coming from a very artistic family, art has always been a passion of mine. I loved making flipbook animations in elementary school and I would sketch anything I could think of. I was lucky enough to have an awesome animation class in high school. I got to experiment with all kinds of animation techniques like claymation, cut-out paper animation, and hand painted cel-animation.
After high school in 2004 I continued my education at The Art Institute of Philadelphia for Media Arts and Animation. I really wanted to bring characters to life with animation. Before I graduated, I also attended AnimationMentor.com to really focus on character animation. In 2007 I graduated from AIPH with a Bachelors of Science and moved cross country to southern California to to start my career in animation.
I've worked for Obsidian Entertainment, Sony Computer Entertainment and have done freelance work for various companies in southern California. It's been a wild ride and I've worked on some fantastic projects along the way. For the past couple of years I've been working on some of Sony's best AAA titles like Uncharted 3, Infamous 2, Sly Cooper 4, and The Last of Us. Currently I am Lead Animator at Insomniac Games on Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4
