Dillon Markey is an animator for Robot Chicken and PES, among other things. "Animation to me is the purest form of conceptualizing mechanical physics. Stop Motion has become my focus, primarily due to the tangibility, immediacy and direct interaction with those physical mechanics. Even the silliest gags require complex recreations of the way things move in the physical world. It is an elegant interplay from mind, to hand, to computer, to screen."
In Washington, D.C. Dillon began selling wire sculptures at Eastern Market on Capitol Hill. In his undergraduate Alma Mater, Hampshire College, Dillon completed an internship at Celebrity Deathmatch, his introduction to the stop-motion animation industry. Dillon attended the California Institute of the Arts and received a Master of Fine Arts in Experimental Animation.
Dillon has temporarily relocated to Amherst, MA, where he is teaching Animation at Hampshire College and building a stop motion program at the school.
