Aaron Linton is joining Guru Studios in Toronto as a CG supervisor and will work on the animated preschool series Justin Time.
Linton comes to Guru from C.O.R.E. Digital, where he headed up the Toons division.
‘I’m very excited to be joining Guru at such a milestone in the company’s evolution. It’s rewarding to be part of a team with a clear focus on developing its own original content,’ says Linton, who has been hired as the show’s CG Supervisor. ‘Justin Time is a fun show with a story-book feel and a fresh, stylized look to it. I’m thrilled to be on board with this project.’
Linton began in visual effect but has gravitated toward working on animated series. His directing credits include Angela Anaconda, The Save-Ums, Franny’s Feet and SuperWhy.
‘We’re very proud to welcome Aaron on board as Guru continues to grow,’ says Frank Falcone, Guru Studio president and creative director. ‘Aaron brings with him a solid background in top-of-the-line animated series and is the perfect fit for honing the pipeline and workflow as we move ahead with Justin Time.’
Justin Time is a preschool series that follows the adventures of Justin and his pals Squidgy and Olive as they travel to the most famous places in time and history.
