The Miyazaki of Motion Capture. Yes his style is to many alienating, but then almost everything was when it was new. The Polar Express is now a beloved Christmas classic.

No, he might not have created amazing T.V. hits or movies that are 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, but surely he's a great animator. He's responsible for Chubby Mermaid (which I loved), and Porkchop n' Flatscreen (which I also loved). This guy is pretty underrated, but is really quite amazing.

99 Gary Goldman

I don't know why Gary isn't up here yet!?! He doesn't get the credit he deserves. Gary is an amazing animator.
