Sandeep Menon’s passion for movies brought him to the United States. In his native India, he received a degree in accessory design from the National Institute of Fashion Technology in New Delhi and trained as a product designer for watches and clocks, but he soon heard his cinematic calling. While attending ArtCenter, he received an art internship at Pixar and worked on the animated movie Up as his first foray into the film industry. Upon graduation, Menon joined the art department at Blue Sky Studios—20th Century Fox—in Greenwich, Connecticut as a visual development artist. Since then, he has worked on several high-profile animated features including "Ice Age: Collision Course," "Ice Age: Continental Drift," "Epic," "The Peanuts Movie," and the upcoming film "Ferdinand."
