My name is Alex Mateo. I was born in 1974 and I live in Valencia, Spain. I have 14 years of experience in the animation industry. In 2004, I, along with other 2 partners, founded Keytoon Animation Studio. During this time I’ve had the opportunity to work on different projects in which I’ve carried out different tasks depending on the needs of each production. Duties included: animation, modeling, texturing, programming, lighting and compositing. Hence, I gained a vast knowledge of all the departments involved in the production process. My experience includes but is not limited to: animated TV series, advertising and animated shortfilms.
Over the years, I’ve specialized in doing what I like the most which is lighting and compositing. For the last 6 years, I’ve been in charge of different departments at Keytoon such as: lighting, render wrangle and compositing. I´ve carried out a total of more than 190 minutes of lighting shots, thousands of layers sent to render and hundreds of composited shots.
I like taking part in the visual development of the projects. I’m a hard working person who always takes his work very seriously. I enjoy working in a team and I’m used to working under pressure. Additionally, I always try to provide my best work.
