Stephen Michael "Steve" Martino is an American director, best known for the films Horton Hears a Who! and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Martino went to Ohio State University where he studied design. After graduation, he heard computer animation pioneer Chuck Csuri speak. "I was absolutely blown away. No one was doing what he was showing us. I hadn't seen images like that anywhere before," Martino said. He returned to the university and earned a graduate degree, studying at the Computer Graphics Research Group (later renamed to Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design), founded by Csuri.
After graduation, he went to Los Angeles, where he worked in animation and visual effects before he joined Connecticut-based Blue Sky Studios. There he co-directed computer-animated Horton Hears a Who! and Ice Age: Continental Drift. For 2015, he is directing an animated feature film adaptation of Charles M. Schulz's comic strip Peanuts.
