About Gav Gnatovich
Gav in a Nutshell: Gavrilo Gnatovich graduated from Boston University School of Fine Arts with a BFA in Painting during the “death of painting” era. “Gav” recently received his MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design while treading murky water during the “end of 2d animation” era. He still paints, he still animates and he ignores labels. He is an award winning animation guy with a vast pocket full of experience. He has created and directed, television pilots for the Cartoon Network, created award winning independent films, corporate and educational videos, and has directed over 100 animated commercials. He is the Head Cheese, the Kahuna Grande, but he is not the end of it all. He has continued to educate and nurture the uncontrollably youthful and blindingly talented, not only to inspire them but also to push him like an envelope filled with cash.
