School of Motion
The name sort of explains it… but to add some clarity:
This site is (in theory) a place to come and learn how to do motion graphics. There are several amazing sites out there that already do this, but I’m hoping that you won’t mind one more. My take on this business comes from over a decade of experience which has included both glorious success and abject, miserable failure. I have learned a lot about what makes someone more or less capable of earning a living doing this, and I can help you understand what employers and clients find most important in a motion graphics artist. My hope is that I can help you break into the field or advance your career. I am a professional motion graphics artist and I’d like to share what I know with you. Thanks for stopping by!
Howdy. I’m originally from the great state of Texas, and I love Mexican Food above all other foods. Currently, I teach full-time at the Ringling College of Art & Design. I was recently a Creative Director at Toil in Boston, MA where I worked with an amazing team of hooligans and misfits that love making cool stuff. Before that I was a very busy freelance After Effects / Cinema 4D artist and before THAT I was an editor / animator at a post house. I’ve seen just about every level of motion graphics on journey, and I think this has given me a unique perspective on what makes a great motion graphics artist. I started School of Motion to try and create a resource for content, tutorials, and feedback. Please get in touch with me if you have any feedback or suggestions for the site, or if you just want to ask me a question.
