My name is Dan Weisman, I'm a freelance 2D character animator, motion graphics artist, illustrator and web designer. I graduated from UCLA earning an MFA in Film and Television with an emphasis in animation. I have created several award winning short films, worked for corporations and small businesses producing motion graphics, and designed and coded several mobile adaptive websites.
I have an extensive knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite, with an emphasis on Flash, After Effects, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver. For the past two years, I worked as a motion graphics artist at UCLA, creating infographic style animations with Photoshop, Flash and After Effects for use with online class lectures. I also used After Effects for live action visual effects and compositing work, helping create the effects for four music videos, including videos for the bands "Destroyer" and "TV on the Radio."
I was the teaching assistant for the Flash animation class at UCLA, where I taught graduate level animation majors how to code and create their own videogames. I also used Dreamweaver to design and code several mobile adaptive websites for various clients, including a clothing line, a music management company, a Sundance short film, and this very site!
I hope you enjoy my work, and thank you for visiting!
