Enrique Gato Borregán (born 26 April 1977 in Valladolid, Castile and León) is a Spanish filmmaker and 3D/2D animation designer known as the creator of Tadeo Jones. With this character he won two Goya Awards.
Gato was born in Valladolid and he grew up in Madrid. Since his childhood he was attracted by animation and technology. When the first personal computers arrived, he began to make his own videogames with an Amstrad CPC 6128.
In 1995 he started his informatic engineering studies at the university, where he learned to develop game engines for preview his own works and understand how to make the 3D geometric previews of several software like Maya, 3D Studio Max or Softimage.
While he was in university, he was hired by Artek, a company specialized in computer graphics. Once in there, he learned to work with programs such as TrueSpace and LightWave 3D, at the same moment Pixar were releasing the first works of CGI animation.
