Be careful what you say to your children. Watching Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonaughts with his father, four year old Chuck Grieb asked how the skeletons “came alive”. His father’s answer, “They got skinny actors” led the boy to a quest for the truth and a lifelong love for the fantastic.
Chuck landed in the animation industry and has served as a storyboard artist, animation director, animator, character designer, development artist, etc. working for studios such as Disney and Nickelodeon. Chuck served as a core member of the team which created the award winning Genie’s Great Mind’s series, Timon and Pumbaa’s Find Out Why educational shorts, Winnie the Pooh Specials and Sing-Along-Songs, etc.
An illustrator, animation artist, and teacher living in Southern California; Chuck continues to create art and animation, pursuing his love for storytelling and the magic he felt when seeing Ray Harryhausen’s skeletons come alive.
