ABOUT THE CREATORS

Doug Lefler

“Any day I can draw a giant robot punching a T-Rex is a good day.”

A film director, writer, storyboard artist and graphic novelist, Doug’s career in the entertainment industry has spanned forty years. He began in animation at Walt Disney Productions (THE BLACK CAULDRON, THE LITTLE MERMAID), worked as a 2nd Unit director (ARMY OF DARKNESS, SPIDER-MAN), TV director (the pilot episodes of HERCULES, THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS and XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS), and a feature film director (THE LAST LEGION). He is currently the Head of Story for The Third Floor, which is the largest previs company in the world.

Doug is also the inventor of Scrollon and a relentless writer and illustrator of his own original content.

Mark Moretti

Mark A. Moretti works primarily as a storyboard artist in Hollywood.  You’ve probably seen his work on any number of feature films, TV shows, music videos, videogame cinematics and commercials for a wide range of Directors, including Steven Spielberg, Adam McKay, Jon Favreau, Bryan Singer, Matt Reeves, Rob Reiner, James L. Brooks, and David Ayer.

Mark’s early interest in combining art with visual storytelling led him to Valiant Comics, where he moved from Penciller to Writer to Editor on multiple Valiant titles.  He is also the co-creator of Valiant’s Ninjak.

Mark lives in Burbank, CA with his wife, Disney WorldWide Publishing Children’s Book Editor Laura Hitchcock.  Two children, Sela and Roman, keep them very busy when they’re not creating entertainment for the masses.

Hiroshi Mori

Hiroshi Mori moved around a lot as a kid, living in Denver, Saskatoon, Tokyo, Shreveport and landed in Honolulu for middle school. At the University of Hawaii Manoa he developed a life long love for photography and was introduced to creating animation in Robert Rodeck’s Images In Motion Class. This eventually led years later to study under the tutelage of Jules Engel  at CalArts in the Experimental Animation program. His hand drawn animated short film CHAIR was shown at many film festivals including SXSW.  
He is one of the founders of The Third Floor previs studio and has been a previs/postvis and layout artist on MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, MEN IN BLACK 3, THE AVENGERS, STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE SITH, SURF’S UP, and many other feature films.
