About me

Hello, I'm Diego,
Lighting and Compositing Artist

I’m a Lighting and Compositing Artist, graduated from the Animation and Digital Art major at ITESM, in Guadalajara, Mexico.

My professional career kick-started in 2013 with my participation on the Mexican stereoscopic animated feature “Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos”, which released internationally in 2015.

In early 2015, I moved to Vancouver to pursue my passion and to work at the epicenter of the industry. I was hired by Rainmaker to work in the Direct-to-DVD movie “Barbie: Spy Squad”. Then I moved to Bardel Entertainment, to join the work on Dreamworks’ “The Adventures of Puss in Boots”.

In late 2016, I began working at Nitrogen Studios on the TV Series “Trollhunters”. The experience I gained there then led me in 2018 to work with Animal Logic in “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part”.

Currently, I have the pleasure to work on “The Addams Family Movie” at Cinesite Vancouver.
