He has worked on such projects as Harry Potter, Madagascar, Thor, Shrek 2, Ice Age 3, Uncharted, Stuart Little 2, Alice in Wonderland, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Skylanders, Oz the Great and Powerful, How to Train your Dragon Pilot and John Carter.

He has given presentations or has taught at the Academy of Art, Cal Arts, CCA, Pratt Institute, USC, SCAD, De Anza College and Ringling Art and Design School. Van enjoys teaching animation and thesis development class as well as volunteering his time to such events as the "Downtown Project" and "Bring your own animation". Van hopes to complete another film or launch a mobile app in the near future.

I enjoy teaching introductory animation through more advanced film making courses.
