Lee – Summer 2022 Intern

My name is Lee. I am an international student and currently pursuing my motion media design MA at SCAD. I like to spend time researching and learning all kinds of skills about motion graphics, for example 2D animation skills, 3D softwares, illustration, graphic designs…etc.

You can recognize me as a motion designer, but I prefer not to confine myself to any certain field. … because I believe that it is the best way to minimize any limitations when I am expressing and visualizing my virtual imaginations into physical world. I also love watching movies and reading books in my leisure time, which is the best way for me to approach any inspiration that I need for my creative work.

Dez – Summer 2022 Intern

Hello! My name is Desiree Miller, but you can call me Dez for short. I am from Morris Plains, New Jersey just outside of Morristown. I currently go to Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and am pursuing a BFA in Illustration for Entertainment. I will be a senior this fall and I can’t wait to see where my artist’s journey will take me next! During my time at SCAD, I have developed a love and appreciation for all kinds of entertainment media.

This past year, I started exploring my interest in mediums such as animation, film, production design, and storyboarding and have been learning how to incorporate it in my own work. Currently, I specialize in visual development, background painting, color design, and children’s illustration. In the future, I hope to use my skills to help and inspire others in the way that other’s work has inspired me. Whether that be using art to spark joy in someone’s eyes, create breathtaking worlds, or spread powerful messages and awareness. I believe that with the right team and mindset the possibilities are endless.
