Raymond Crook
Lead Animator

Raymond Crook has been animating for Double Fine Productions in San Francisco for the past 15 years and has been the studio’s lead animator since 2012.


After graduation Raymond was hired by Double Fine Productions, as a character artist and character rigger. Animation was Raymond’s passion, but he took on a non-animator roll to get his foot in the door. Raymond eventually moved over to the animation team full time and in time was asked to take on animation supervisor rolls on multiple projects, eventually being promoted to Studio Lead Animator.
After the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter success, Raymond was asked to help develop a new animation style and workflow for Tim Schafer’s newest adventure game, Broken Age. After the release of Broken Age, Raymond has moved into the world of VR, supervising the animation as well as art direction of Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, slated for release on the Sony Playstation VR.

Games Raymond worked on: Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, Costume Quest, Once Upon a Monster, Middle Manager of Justice, Broken Age, Hack-n-Slash, Massive Chalice, Day of the Tentacle Remaster, Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin.
