 Animation---Jury & Special Guests

Bob Harper; Animation Producer/Director 
For Bob, It all started out simple enough, working at a comic book store. Then there was the adventurous period of the painful and difficult job of pro wrestler. That was followed by stand up comedy, which proved to be even more painful and difficult. Let's not forget the confused period of stage magic, but let's face it, nobody likes magicians. Finally Bob settled for career in animation where he has created and worked for companies such as Disney, Cartoon Network and DreamWorks TV.  Presently he is creating new projects and directing an animated series for Chinese television. Bob is now building his own studio, A Fistful of Crayons, while hanging out with his kids in search of bigfoot and UFO's.
