Josh Planz was born and raised in East Hampton, New York. At an early age, Josh took advantage of all the benefits of a community rich in art with the help of his grandfather Allen Planz, a world renowned poet. His mother helped shape his tendency for the theatrics with an early acting career including his induction into the Screen Actors Guild at the age of 7, and long list of theater and commercial work.
Flash forward; Josh received his MFA degree in Computer Art from the School of Visual Arts in 2013, and since then his work has been featured in the Creators Project, Sploid, Siggraph Asia, Slamdance and Moma PS1. Josh now freelances in New York, teaches 3D animation at the School of Visual Arts and pursues passion projects.
Oh and he just learned how to ride a bike...
