I’m an experienced Layout Artist, driven by both creativity and technical excellence, with a true passion for compelling storytelling. Born and raised in Mexico, with 9+ years of experience in the 3D Animation Industry, I’m currently working as Rough Layout Lead at Sony Pictures Imageworks in Vancouver, Canada.

I have studied a BA in Digital Cinema and Animation at the University of Advanced Technologies (UNIAT) in Guadalajara, Mexico, a Previsualization and Animatics course at Gnomon School of Visual Effects, Games + Animation in Los Angeles, USA, an online Pre-Visualization course at and an online Unreal Fellowship: Worldbuilding program from Epic Games.

I have worked on various projects, from TV shows to movies, for different companies in Mexico and Canada. I have held different roles, from Previs and Layout Artist to Layout Lead with a team of 21 artists, as well as Cinematographer and Layout Supervisor for a multi-award-winning 3D Animated Short Film. Some of the outstanding movies I’ve worked on are: “Hotel Transylvania 3”, “Smallfoot”, “The Angry Birds Movie 2”, “The Mitchells vs. the Machines”, “Vivo” and “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania”.

Aldo is highly skilled, both technically and artistically, an excellent communicator and a great leader. Not only was he instrumental in setting up protocols to enhance artists’ workflow and productivity, he also developed ongoing tips and tricks sessions for the team, and always encouraged team-building activities to reinforce team cohesion and trust. Any producer/director would be lucky to have him as part of their team!

Aldo is simply an amazing artist. He is super organized, talented, ultra clean in his work, a team player, fast learner and just the best coordinator I’ve ever worked with. I look forward to working again with this guy and I can honestly say he has a super bright future ahead of him.
