Latest projects supervised for WETA FX
Originally from Brazzaville, Congo in central Africa, I now live and work in Wellington, New Zealand.
I am a senior Animation supervisor at Wētā FX
(formerly Weta Digital), mainly overseeing the animation of the Marvel Universe productions.
I also occasionally work in a mentoring capacity at Triggerfish and Animation Mentor.
After 15 years in the field of animation, I am still excited by the daily opportunity I have to meet, collaborate with and befriend so many of the directors and artists who initially inspired me.
Growing up in my little Congo, I witnessed first hand how full of raw artistic talent the African continent is. Its youth, exuberant and passionate about storytelling, is ready, willing and eager to be initiated into the ways of the 7th art.
I have created the THIRD POLE to this end. To unveil what we do in the film industry and find ways to develop artistic programs that will guide our African youth to be able to work on western productions and ultimately tell their own stories, their own way.
To put together an education program, and a collaborative network that will bring work to the continent, is the goal of the THIRD POLE initiative.
With over 15 years experience, covering 2d and 3d animation, The third Pole offers a critical eye to help boost the quality of your animation regardless of its style.
Backed by experiences in directing, concept design, storyboard and previsualisation, Third Pole helps fill the holes in your story in line with your vision.
We never shy away from an opportunity to give back. So thanks to Animation Mentor, Emile Cohl school, Various conferences and Triggerfish, Sidney kombo speaks to young artists, hoping to inspire them as much as their passion inspires him.
