Jo Meuris is an award-winning filmmaker and animator from Canada. A bit of a workaholic, Jo has had a steady stream of contracts since completing her BFA in 1998. Her work can be seen in over a dozen National Film Board of Canada productions, where she worked as an animator, supervising animator, lead compositor, and directed two films of her own (An Aqueous Solution, completed in 2003, and the multi-award-winning film The Girl Who Hated Books, completed in 2006). She also worked on numerous other feature films, documentaries, commercials, and short independent productions as an animator, clean-up artist, compositor, and editor. Her personal films have screened and won awards at hundreds of film festivals worldwide.
In 2014, Jo moved to Las Vegas to develop the new Animation track within the Visual Media major at Nevada State College. She teaches courses in animation, motion graphics, and drawing and continues to work in animation production.
