When it comes to animation, Robert Alvarez has done almost everything. "I’ve boarded, I’ve directed, I’ve designed, I’ve done backgrounds and I’ve animated. Everything but loading film." …
While a student at Choinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, Robert began his career with t.v. animation producer Fred Calvert. One of his first assignments? Working on a British project entitled Yellow Submarine, starring a rock group whose name has been lost in the mists of time. (Not.)
