Cameron Hood is an award-winning writer, director, producer, and animator best known for directing DreamWork's award-winning short "First Flight." While at Dreamworks, Cameron worked on such films as "Kung Fu Panda 2," "How to Train Your Dragon," and "Shrek Forever After." He also co-created DreamWorks Animation's "Megamind."

Cameron started his career in the summer of 1996 when Warner Bros. invited him to study under animation legend Chuck Jones. It was a dream come true for Cameron, who loved the Looney Tunes characters. In 2011 Cameron directed two "Merry Melodies" for Warner Bros. Animation, which was truly an honor given Cameron's love and respect for Chuck and the Looney Tunes history.

Cameron graduated from Sheridan College in 1997 from the prestigious Classical Animation Program. Upon graduation Cameron was hired by DreamWorks Animation Studios.

In 2002 Cameron worked on Sony Imageworks "Stuart Little 2" as a Senior Animator while teaching at the world-renowned Gnomon School of Visual Effects. He hosted Gnomon's best-selling Character Animation Lecture Series, teaching students and professionals the art of feature animation.

In 2006, Cameron directed "First Flight," DreamWorks' first original theatrically-released short film. The film received multiple awards, rave reviews, and international recognition. The film also caught the attention of Ben Stiller and Red Hour Films, who offered Cameron a chance to develop "Megamind." This became the first time in DreamWorks' history an internal director successfully developed and brought a film into production.

Cameron and his Lime Light Studios' team are set to release their first feature film "Sky Force," a co-production with T-Films in Hong Kong. Cameron also recently consulted on Illumination Entertainment's "Despicable Me 2."

Cameron is a native of Toronto and has been living in Los Angeles since 1997.
