Introducing our New Senior Motion Designer: Hayley Anderson

Monday, December 5th, 2016

Whenever we add a new Mighteorite to our internet wunderkind crew, it feels like our universe is expanding a little bit. But this week, our crew is adding a shiny new star. As our animation needs grow and the world of animation continues to excite, it only makes sense that we would double down with top notch talent.

Check out some of the projects Hayley has worked on!

Hayley comes to us from Weber Shandwick, an internationally renowned communications shop where she worked with prestigious clients such as The U.S. Army, The U.S. Department of the Treasury, Honeywell, Cargill, Land O’Lakes, Unilever, IEEE, Opus, Sealed Air and Tork.For the past 4 years she has worked as an animator, illustrator, shooter, editor and producer on over 600 videos for more than 150 different clients. She is deeply in love with motion design, married to Adobe After Effects.Although she has worked in all areas of video production, she specializes in animation and motion graphics; focusing mainly on traditional 2D, vector-based, hand-drawn, kinetic typography, stop-motion and parallaxed photography.

But enough from us. How about a little insight from our newest Mighteorite:

Why Animation + Motion?

I started drawing and creating stop-motion films at a very young age. I guess it’s not a surprise that I fell in love with something that combines two of my favorite things!

What makes a great internet video?

Feeling… a great video should make feel something, if it gives you goosebumps then you’re onto something.

What’s your favorite internet video?

Why should clients be thinking about animation in 2017?

You can literally create ANYTHING with animation.  I believe most humans are visual learners, animation is an incredible tool when it comes to illustrating complex concepts or showing off a new product or service that doesn’t physically exist in the real world yet.

Favorite thing to binge watch on Netflix?

Loving Black Mirror so far even though it’s starting to give me anxiety.
