Yann Tremblay, one of The Triplets of Belleville's main animators, has recently joined Sarbakan's team as lead 2d animator.
Yann, who was responsible of the character Bruno the dog's animation in the Triplets of Belleville, will now supervise the animation of some of Sarbakan's upcoming feature projects.
Yann, a graduate of the Vancouver Film Institute, has worked extensively in the field over the last 10 years. He has recently completed two National Film Board of Canada projects, "Christmas Christmas" and "Penguins Behind Bars."
Sarbakan has hired over the last few weeks many of Canada's top talents in their respective fields to round up its already solidly established team of 40 artists. Among the new hires are Stephane Duchesne as Lead 3D Animator and Line Lacroix as Account Manager, Canadian territory.
