Our Team.

Joe Rothenberg - Founder

I'm the owner & creative lead at Joe Rothenberg Animation. I'm an animator, writer, and animation producer living in Austin, Texas. I lived in Los Angeles for 7 years while I studied animation at the University of Southern California, created a pilot for Nickelodeon, animated for a number of film, TV and web projects, and launched 2 mobile games. Satisfied with my conquests out west, I headed to Austin to expand my freelance animation business into a full animation production studio.

Michelle Acosta - Animation Assistant

I'm a 2D Artist/ Animator living in San Marcos, TX and I travel to and from Austin almost every day to work and school. I am currently working on getting an Associates degree in 2D Animation at Austin Community College and loving every minute of it! In my free time, I enjoy drawing and playing video games like Journey, Bioshock, and Minecraft. As for my favorite foods, I enjoy some really fresh seafood by the coast or some nice BBQ from here in good ol' Central Texas.

Stephanie Meyer - Project Manager

I'm a Project Manager/Producer with a love of all animation & a passion for seeing projects through to the finish line. I graduated from University of Southern California in 2012 with a degree in animation and digital art. Out of school, I gained experience in managing an international team of programmers to deliver results for multiple clients' tech projects. Outside of the realm of production, I spend my free time painting, playing video games, and coming up with wacky story and mobile app ideas.
