Nelson Boles, creative director
Nelson Boles was born in Los Angeles and grew up in New Orleans. He is a graduate of CalArts, where he met and began working with Skyler. His animated short Little Boat became an online sensation, amassing more than a thousand viewers on YouTube alone, which helped him with his self-esteem quite a bit. The only notable thing he's worked on was the Spike Jonze film Her. The character Belson is based on Nelson's best qualities. The name is a clever play on Nelson's actual name, Nelson.
