Big Idea Wiki

Brian K. Roberts is an executive producer and former director. He started liking doing animation when Disney's The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast were released. During college, he watched the second VeggieTales episode God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! and decided to ask them if he can work there as internship for the company. At the time, they weren't hiring anyone, but he eventually became part of the production team during production of Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen.

He worked at Big Idea from January 2000 to September 2012, before he left to become an executive producer at DreamWorks Animation.

Roberts originally worked as an animator and story artist, but started directing during production of Gideon: Tuba Warrior.
