Graphic Designer (Lead) – M2 Pictures

9/14 – 1/16

I was promoted from Post Production Assistant to Graphics Assistant. I was thrown straight into the pit, and I immediately started churning out graphics such as lower 3rds, map animations, and special effects (lightning, smoke, fire). After proving that I could handle the fast-paced environment and meet the strict deadlines of reality TV I was given the title Graphic Designer. Being one of the main graphic designers at M2, I was able to work with producers to conceptualize and produce a polished package that fit with the theme of the show. I've worked on shows with TLC, Investigative Discovery, The Travel Channel and the American Heroes Channel.
