For over 15 years, Raman Hui has been a major force at PDI/DreamWorks, guiding the animation team from commercials and shorts to feature films.

He started at the studio in 1989 working on various commercials and award-winning short films, which led to his position as Lead Character Designer/Supervising Animator on PDI/DreamWorks’ first full-length computer-animated feature film, “Antz.” From there he went on to serve as Supervising Animator on the Academy Award®-winning blockbuster “Shrek” , as well as the follow up Universal Studios theme park attraction “Shrek 4D.” He also went on to serve as one of the Supervising Animators on the blockbuster sequel, “Shrek 2,” which went on to become the highest grossing animated film of all time. For a brief time he served as Director of Animation on DreamWorks Television & NBC’s prime-time animated comedy “Father of the Pride.” He recently completed his first co-directing debut on “Shrek the Third” and is now working on the studio’s Kung Fu Panda animated short, “The Secrets of the Furious Five”.

During the past decade at PDI/DreamWorks, Hui has worked on a variety of 3D characters, including a CG Mickey Mouse for Jim Henson’s “Muppetvision”, the first CG Pillsbury Doughboy and a helmeted Martian who interacts with a live-action earthling for Hanna-Barbera’s television special, “The Last Halloween”. Hui also directed, wrote and produced the celebrated PDI/DreamWorks short film, “Sleepy Guy”, which has received awards at the London Animation Festival, the US International Film & Video Festival and won first place at Imagina in 1995. His latest in-house short, “Fat Cat on a Diet”, has been screened at many festivals and conferences, including the London Effects and Animation Festival (LEAF), Anima Mundi and the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival.

Hui began his animation career in Hong Kong at Quantum Studio where he worked as a cel animator. Later, he moved to Canada to study computer animation at Sheridan College.
