Justin Copeland

Formally, I was a storyboard artist at Marvel Animation, Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Animation. At WB, I worked my way up to Director and made my debut on Batman: Hush. I then moved over to SkyBound where I worked as a showrunner on Invincible with my brother. From there, we both moved to DreamWorks where we're in development on an animated feature.
