Stephan Franck is a writer/director/animator who has worked on over 25 feature films for Disney, Dreamworks, Warner Bros, Universal and Columbia Pictures. He was a supervising animator on The Iron Giant, and contributed story to films such as DESPICABLE ME. He is the co-creator of the cult TV show CORNEIL & BERNIE (AKA WATCH MY CHOPS) (TF1, BBC, ABC Australia), that ran in over 60 countries and just got picked up for a second season. He's had the giant out-of-body experience of being personally hired by George Lucas to direct a project so cool and crazy it had to be abandoned, set up the original movie Futuropolis at Sony Pictures Animation, just sold a bunch of other stuff we're not allowed to talk about yet, and is currently directing a Smurfs featurette for Sony.
