Liz Bernard has overseen incredible work on projects like She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Free Guy, and Captain Marvel. Once upon a time though, she was just a child enamoured with the slapstick style of Looney Tunes cartoons. “I saved my allowance and bought Chuck Jones’s autobiography. That sparked my imagination and I realised this could be a career.”

Bernard studied theatre design and ran a photography business in West Africa before enrolling in the online school Animation Mentor, moving to Canada, and landing an animator job at revered VFX studio Digital Domain. Since then, she has gradually worked her way up to become senior animation supervisor, and sat down with 3D World to explain what her role looks like on a day-to-day basis.
