About David

I'm a generalist using Maya and After Effects primarily producing 3d computer animation including rafts of flying logos, commercials, movies, medical and industrial productions, stereoscopic , motion tracking, product replacement and assorted effects work.

I'm an old hand at media production with over 40 years of experience in computer animation. I have 89 episodes of cell animation to my credit and numerous awards. I earned an Emmy for work done on the National Geographic movie "Five Years On Mars" in 2008.

Prior to the existence of the the world of computer animation, I was a visual designer with a BFA from Auburn University (a Bauhaus type program). It takes a combination of first rate art and design skills, strong technological aptitude, and excellent general communication ability to make it in the highly competitive field of computer animation these days.

I've been running Maya since release 1.0 and After Effects since its early days on productions big and small. Windows and Macs are pretty much interchangeable these days though Windows has a longer history with Maya and a wide selection of lower cost graphics card.

I've trained quite a few artists in computer animation and production for job preparation or as interns seeking work in my role as the former head of the graphics department at a large video production facility (National Video Industries) and in my own production company.

Most of my clients have retired now so that leaves me with a semi-retired schedule and a great deal of experience in the field. One of my former trainees who had her MFA in computer animation said she learned more with me in six weeks than she did in graduate school in two years. Bear in mind, that was six weeks of very intensive work, long days and under a tight deadline.
