Keith Sintay was born on February 22 in Southfield, Michigan, he currently lives in the Los Angeles area.
Sintay had aspirations of becoming an animator from the time he could draw his first stick figure. He was inspired to pursue his dream after seeing The Rescuers in 1977; the sketchy pencil lines left on the characters in that movie allowed a peek into the art behind the scenes. To him it was inspiring. He grew up in Michigan and after a few distractions, remembered that he had once wanted to make an animated film. So, he pursued the Disney Feature Animation internship by finishing art school and practising his drawing. He was accepted into the Disney internship program and was hired shortly after to work on Pocahontas. Sintay has worked on the films Hunchback, Mulan, and Tarzan at Disney Feature, and Spirit, Sinbad and Sharktale at Dreamworks. At Sony Pictures Imageworks Keith was Sr. Animator on Open Season, Monster House, Beowulf and I am Legend. Currently, he is working at Digital Domain on Transformers 2.
In addition to his work as an animator, Sintay is a contributing artist and illustrator for several books by author Mark Simon. Included in these are Facial Expressions and Storyboards, Motion in Art.
