: Elvis Deane
studied animation and television news production at Dawson College in
Montreal. In January 1998, he moved to Ontario, and attended Humber
College's newly started 3D course. During that year, he co-directed a
team to create the animated music video Coolie's Sake for rock band hydrofoil.
In 2001, Elvis started to experiment with new animation styles. The result was The Treasure of Wunday, an experimental short film that made heavy use of particleIllusion for backgrounds and effects.
Currently, he works on his own animated shorts and creating effects for
independent films, taking the occasional break to work on his comic
strip, Shocking Tales, and a novel, Ezilio the Tyrant.
