Andy Collen began his career at the age of 13, selling his meticulously detailed clay sculptures at a local gallery in Aspen, Colorado. Andy attended University Northern Colorado, University of Colorado at Boulder, UCLA Film School, and The Pacific Northwest College or Art.
Interests in the art of animation lead Andy to Los Angeles where he gained industry experience as a production assistant for the Terry Thoren/CEO (Animation Magazine 1989).
Intrigued by the growing number of independent animators in Portland, Oregon Andy relocated to the Northwest where he completed an apprenticeship with Tom Arndt of Merlin’s Hammer Studio. This hands-on experience with commercial animation and special effects gave Andy the skills to freelance with companies such as Vinton Studios (California Raisins) and Blashfield & Associates (creator of mixed-media music videos as Tears for Fears "Sowing the Seeds of Love;" and Michael Jackson's "Leave Me Alone").
Creator of the studio Happy Trails Animation, Andy directs eye-catching commercials and independent films. His extensive background in visual effects, technology and the art of animation help drive the studio’s commitment to generating original, inspiring productions.
