aka: Mike Dietz

Biography edit · view history

The indisputable best animator in the biz, Mike makes us all look better than we really are. We all learn animation from him and stand slack jawed at his ability. Mike likes to raise Sea Monkeys. He tries to teach them tricks like the package says you can. Mike worked on the same games as Douglas TenNapel only his animation was much better. Mike helped to invent the Digicel Process and the Animotion 1 and 2 processes. He has invented a new process here at the Neverhood, but we aren't going to try to exploit it or him by trying to snow you with it. WWW.MIKEDIETZ.COM is his website and Slappy Pictures is his animation company...
