Jaime Diaz ( 1936-2009 )

El pasado 20 de Junio falleció en California, Jaime Diaz.
Argentino de nacimiento , Jaime Diaz viajo a Estados Unidos en 1963 para desarrollar una larga carrera en el campo de la animación trabajando en diversos estudios como Warner Bros., Hanna-Barbera, y Filmation, entre otros.
A principio de los años 80, regresa a la Argentina , y monta un estudio para proveer de animación al mercado norteamericano. Allí se realizaron capítulos completos de series como "Los Pitufos", "Pac-Man", la animación del capitulo piloto de " Dexter's Laboratory", y diversos comerciales animados para el mercado local.
Es notable la importancia de este estudio en la historia de la animación en la Argentina, ya que fue formador de toda una generación de animadores y dibujantes.
En 1995 cierra el estudio, y regresa a Estados Unidos donde continuó trabajando dentro de la industria de la animación.
Es ahí, en 1995, justo una semana antes de que vuelva a USA cuando yo lo conocí en su estudio (fui a pedir trabajo o consejos para entrar al mundo de la animación). Hablamos no mas de 20 minutos, le mostre mis dibujos, y él me dijo, ..."no te puedo ayudar , porque me vuelvo a Estados Unidos, pero seguí para adelante porque tenes talento...".
Yo estaba terminando el colegio secudario, y sus palabras me confirmaban que mi futuro debía estar sobre un tablero de animación.

Desde aqui , mis respetos para Jaime Diaz.

Last June 20 in California, Jaime Diaz passed away. Born in Argentina, he travel to United States in 1963 to develop a long career in the country of the animation, working in diverse studios as Warner Bros., Hanna-Barbera, and Filmation, among others. At the beginning of the 80's, he returns to Argentina, and opened a studio to provide animation to the American market.
There, episodes of animated tv series were carried out like "The smurfs", "Pac-Man", the animation for the "Dexter' s Laboratory" pilot, and diverse animated commercials for the local market. Is notable the importance of this studio in the history of the animation in Argentina, since he was mentor of all a generation of animators and draftsmans. In 1995 he closes the studio, and he returns to United States where continued working inside the industry of the animation.
It is there, in 1995, just a week before he return to USA again when I knew him in his studio (I went to ask work or counsels to enter to the world of the animation). We speak no more than 20 minutes, show my drawings, and he told me,... "I cannot help you, because I return to United States, but you should go ahead because you have talent. ..”. I was finishing the high school, and his words confirmed me that my future should to be on an animation desk.


From here, my respects for Jaime Diaz.

The animator

Animation is both art and craft; it is a process in which the cartoonist, ilustrator, fine artist, screenwriter, musician, camera operator, and motion picture director combine their skills to create a new breed of artist: The animator.
