Andrew Gryn

Director

Photography being one of his passions, you will find Andrew walking about and capturing images in the heart of Mile End where he grew up and raised his family. He majored in Graphic Design at Concordia University. Animation productions for television included The Little Mermaid, The Happy Prince and The Remarkable Rocket for Potterton Productions and was followed by Heavy Metal The Movie (1981). There was a shift at that point, from the art department to production management. Then came the live action commercials and feature films such as Joshua Then and Now (1985). Another major shift in the 1990’s to the Voice Over Department, with Casting and Voice Directing as the main event. Recent work has been self produced short videos commercial and art photography, plus voice workshops for up and coming actors.
