The animation guru

A classically trained artist and a professional animator, Dave Zaboski explores the visionary edges where art and technology meet. He brought his unique style to Disney, Sony and Warner Bros., employing a complex multidisciplinary process on high-stakes films such as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan and more. With his current project, The Alchemy of Creativity, Dave draws on his artistry and animation team experience to help individuals and companies craft initiatives that foster collaborative cultures, creativity and innovation.

Dave has an extensive history lecturing and leading workshops for organizations, entrepreneurs, educators, artists and others looking for new ways to make their ideas tangible. He’s also taught at UCLA, USC, the Art Center College of Design in Southern California, as well as at Singularity University and Lucid University. His Divine Line Studios endeavour specializes in content creation for film, transmedia, print and live events, helping creators bring ideas to life through traditional and digital illustration, animation, design, sound and light.

“What if we could use art and technology to tell a new story in service to humanity… to actually enhance human potential… to hack enlightenment?”
