Currently Accepting Interns?
Not currently, but we’re always open to the possibility if the right candidate presents him or herself. We’ll need to be blown away by your portfolio and/or your personality. Preferably both.
We do think it’s important to give back to our community though, and we want to help as many people as we can. So as our way of giving back, and helping the next generation of mographers, we currently have open office hours on the first Wednesday of every month (3pm-5pm) for anyone that’s looking for education, advice or feedback on animation, motion design, graphic design, illustration, adobe software, cinema4d, etc.
It’ll be a casual, fun, no-judgment environment, and all experience levels are welcome. Come with your questions, and we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.
What is animation?
It’s all about bringing life to a subject through illustration and motion. By using animation, we can infuse life into a character or object to help tell a story. Stories are fun to tell with animation and the possibilities are truly limitless.
Great animation uses a character or narration to drive the story and incites real emotion in the viewer. If you’re like us, you watched cartoons as a kid and just thinking about them brings back powerful happy feelings.
You probably have seen (and enjoyed) Frozen or Toy Story, both great examples of the possibilities of 3D animation on a very large scale.
What is illustration?
Drawings, paintings, or digital art are all forms of illustration. Having thoughtful, well-designed illustrations are key to a successful animation. The illustrator takes concepts from the client or art director and uses their creative mind to make the overall vision come to life.
A great illustrator can create beautiful artwork that fits the concept and explains the whole idea in a simplistic and easy to understand way. Illustration isn’t limited just to animation, it’s used for published media, flyers, posters, magazines, books, teaching materials, and motion graphics.
What type of videos do we create?
We create videos that fully realize a clients concept and engage viewers with a perfectly matched branding approach.
Videos are usually between 60-90sec and fully animated for web distribution and marketing through all digital channels (YouTube, Vimeo, client websites, social media, etc).
These videos range from animated explainer videos, product demos, promotional videos, to tutorial and educational videos, and business sales tools.
We also love to create shorter form video content. This is the stuff you can use again and again throughout your marketing efforts, like logo animations, animated gifs, title graphics, and lower thirds. Logo animations are a great asset for applying uniform branding at the start of every video a client promotes.
Many clients need a complex product or process explained through video in a way that is simple and easy to understand. This is where animated video is really helpful; we can deliver that concept or message with a combination of dialog and visuals in a very short period while also making it entertaining to the viewer. The best part? No one on your staff needs to do any acting.
We’re storytellers at heart.
