Nathan Stanton began his career at Pixar in June 1996 as a story artist for Pixar’s second feature film, A Bug’s Life, and has worked on many of the studio’s successes since then. Stanton contributed his storyboarding talents to Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. and the Academy Award-winning feature films Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, WALL•E, Brave and Coco. He also served as Head of Story on Cars 2 and the animated short The Blue Umbrella.
After graduating from the California Institute of the Arts in 1992 with a B.F.A. in character animation, Stanton moved to San Francisco and became a 2D assistant animator on Skellington Productions’ The Nightmare Before Christmas. He went on to work at Colossal Pictures on a number of projects, also in 2D animation. Stanton then returned to Skellington Productions to work on James and the Giant Peach. After a short stint at Wild Brain Studios, Stanton was hired at Pixar.
Stanton is now an independent contractor, storyboarding on several projects including the upcoming stop motion/live action feature film The Toymaker’s Secret and the stop-motion feature film Bubbles.
