GREG TIERNAN (Director), owner and CCO of Nitrogen Studios
Canada Inc., trained in classical feature animation at the famed Don Bluth
Studios in the mid-1980s and has held positions spanning the entire creative
spectrum of the animation business during his 30+ year career. Tiernan's resume
reads as a who's-who of the industry with over 20 feature animated movies, 100s
of TV episodes, and dozens of TV Commercials, Video Game titles and CD ROM

what comes next.
