Corrie Francis Parks
That’s me! I’m an award-winning animator, creator of 6 short films and numerous commercial works. I approach each project from a fresh perspective of stylistic opportunity, aiming to strike a balance between communication and visual innovation. When not in my studio animating away, I’m out playing in the closest mountain range.
Mark is part of the San Francisco based group, Tin Hat Trio. In addition to his work with Tin Hat, Mark has a vibrant career as a composer, and frequently works with film. In fact, he was nominated for Best New Composer by The International Film Music Critics Association in 2006 and was recently a Sundance Institue Composer Fellow. I’m thrilled to be working with him on “A Tangled Tale”.
