Dillon Markey has a Master of Fine Art in Experimental Animation from the California Institute of the Arts, and a Bachelor of Art from Hampshire College.

For the past 7 years, Markey has worked professionally as an animator in Los Angeles, contributing to television shows such as Robot Chicken, short films including the Academy Award nominated "Fresh Guacamole" by PES, commercials for a broad range of products, and has directed several shorts and music videos. He was a featured presenter at Pixelatl Festival of Animation in Cuernavaca Mexico in 2015 and has performed several large scale live demonstrations of stop motion animation at venues like San Diego Comicon and Silicon Valley Comicon. In January 2015, the short documentary "Playing With Power" focused on Markey and the Nintendo Powerglove that he modified to control the camera capture software, Dragonframe.

His primary concern is the creation of animated movement as an autonomous discipline; independent of the other aspects of film making, but with the ability to accent and augment things like concept, story, and design.
