My name is Dan Donaldson, a kick *** Motion Designer from Phialdelphia, PA. I strive for the best in my work and I don't stop until I reach perfection. Dedicated, energetic, and detail oriented are just some of the words I use to describe myself. Here is a little info to help you get a better understanding of my work and me. Since I graduated college in 2012, I have had the privilege to work at or for several different companies that each utilized a different skill in my repertoire. I've worked as a visual effects artist for a feature film at Brolik Productions and in the fast paced environment of television at NBC Sports. I also started a motion graphics company with two of my college friends called Three Piece Suit Productions. We have done work for companies such as Brolik, Lady White Entertainment, and MM Agency for clients such as AOL, Monster Math Club, Reality Sports Online, and a national bank (Curse those NDAs!) My work is done in After Effects blended with assets made in Illustrator or Photoshop. I am eager to work on this project with you. Creating short, thought provoking, and entertaining animations is my bread and butter. I've included a link to my demoreel in this cover letter.

The thesis comprises PDFs as well as Word documents. December 2013 – present Copy-editor consultant on two authors’ manuscripts.
