Hey, I'm Carlos F.!

Los Angeles, California

Born in 1981, Carlos Fernandez Puertolas is a Spanish Director/Animator with over 20 years of experience in the film industry. 


Like the protagonist of the film, Carlos was an aimless teenager that with the help of his mom found his true passion. He launched his animation career at the age of 18 and got his big breakthrough when he was offered a position at Dreamworks Animation. Without hesitation, Carlos packed his bags and moved to the US where he worked as an animator on movies such as “Shrek,” “Madagascar,” “Megamind,” and many others.


In 2015, Carlos became the Head of Animation on the Oscar-nominated film “The Boss Baby” and most recently became the Head of Animation on the critically acclaimed franchise “Trolls”. Outside Dreamworks, Carlos also directs live-action Short films through his production company Side Films, which he created with a fellow Dreamworks animator. Puertolas is a proud member of the Academy of Motion Pictures and currently lives in Glendale with his partner and tiny dog.
