Born and raised in Newfoundland, Bruce Alcock has worked internationally as a director for the past 19 years. He continues to generate a technique-agnostic approach to production: live action, CGI, drawing, painting, photo-animation, film scratching, stop-motion: whatever is right for the project.
Bruce studied tuba performance and comparative literature at the University of Toronto and then moved to Barcelona, where he apprenticed with animator Dirk Van de Vondel. Global Mechanic is his third production company; he founded Cuppa Coffee Animation in Toronto (1991) and Tricky Pictures in Chicago (1995). He also created the font FF Soupbone
