Will Vinton (born November 17, 1947 in McMinnville, Oregon) is an American director and producer of animated films. He has won an Oscar for his work, and several Emmy Awards and Clio Awards for his studio's work.
During the 1960s, Vinton studied physics, architecture and filmmaking at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was influenced by the work of Antoni Gaudí.[citation needed] During this time, Vinton made a black-and-white feature-length documentary film about the California counter-culture movement titled Gone For a Better Deal, which toured college campuses in various film festivals of the time. Two more films about student protest followed, Berkeley Games and First Ten Days, as well a narrative short Reply, and his first animation, Culture Shock.
