Chris DiGiovanni
CEO/Managing Partner at Baby Giant Hollyberg
Hollywood/Berlin/Vancouver

Chris earned his production stripes at MTV in the fast pace of New York
City's live-action scene before moving west to join the then-upstart CG
house Pixar. After almost a decade that included 7 feature and 8 short
films. His crew's efforts yielding 22 Academy Award Nominations, 7 Oscars
and 6 Golden Globes for Pixar.

Chris returned home to New York where he
was named Production Manager at Blue Sky Animation Studios working with
Steve Carell and Jim Carrey on "Dr. Seuss'​ Horton Hears a Who!"​(20th
Century Fox).

In 2008 Starz Animation in Toronto locked Chris down to work alongside
Tim Burton on "9"​(Focus Features), and Elton John on "Gnomeo and
Juliet"​(Touchstone).

As Head of Production at Hawaii Animation Studios
in Honolulu, Chris spent 2 years building this CG boutique
from the ground up, as well as partner with the University of Hawaii to
design an intense intern animation program(mirroring Pixar's) run
through the studio for animation students.

In late 2011 Chris teamed up again with director Jimmy Hayward "Horton Hears a
Who"​ as his First Assistant Director on "Free Birds"​, and in 2013 stayed on to help produce "Book of Life" with Producers Guillermo del Toro and Aron Warner at Reel FX Animation Studios.

2014-Current Chris and his production partner of 20 years Jimmy Hayward are at it again. This time launching a new Animation Studio "Baby Giant" Hollyberg with facilities in Hollywood, Berlin and most recently Vancouver.

School Story:

I have many...most revolve around school events during homecoming week, talent shows, and general nonsense. I remember when some folks fertilized the front lawn so the grass would grow and spell out stupid stuff. That could be read from the second story classrooms... And I remember getting kicked out during Huron Hockey game senior year for collaborating on fIrst goal bagel prank with others who shall go unnamed. My conciliation was I got to see War games with Lisa Smith across the street at the cinema( she took pity on me as I had no ride home;)
