Angus MacLane is an American animator, director, screenwriter, and voice artist who has infused lives in cartoons for more than two decades. He was born in 1975 in Portland, Oregon. As a child, Angus wanted to be a comic book artist but his interests gradually leaned more towards animation by the time he completed his schooling. Dreaming of working at Laika, LLC animation studio (formerly Will Vinton Studios) one day, he enrolled in the Rhode Island School of Design in 1997, from where he graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts. Straight after graduation, he began working for Pixar Studios, developing animation of “Geri’s Game” (1997).

Since then he has been a part of the animation team of every Pixar movie except “Toy Story” (1995). Over the years, he gradually climbed up the ladder of hierarchy at Pixar: he first became the character developer for “Monsters Inc.” (2001) and “The Incredibles” (2004), which won him the Annie Award for ‘Character Animation’; later he supervised the animation of “One Man Band” (2005); and finally he directed the animation of blockbuster movie “Wall-E” (2008). Angus’s first project as a director was the short film “Burn-E” (2008), which is a spin-off of Wall-E.

He also voiced the lead character Burn-E in the movie. He next directed two more short films, “Small Fry” (2011) and “Toy Story of Terror!” (2013); the latter was a television special film, for which he received the Annie Award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Directing’ in 2014. He was the co-director of “ Finding Dory Click to look into! >> Read More... Finding Dory ” (2016), in which the Sunfish ‘Charlie Back and Forth’ was dubbed in his voice. Apart from acting, Angus loves to build with Lego blocks. He even created the building format for CubeDudes and built a Lego Wall-E, which the LEGO Group officially added to their set.
