WORK

I would work with Jerry again in a heartbeat. Jerry is a perfectionist and it shows in the work he produces. His animation skills are top notch and he always met our deadlines. His demeanor is very laid back which makes working with him incredibly easy. I will definitely look to Jerry for future projects!

Ryan Holt, Owner of No Limits Multimedia

Jerry Nelson is a very talented rock solid animator. It’s a pleasure to work with him on projects. He is always is cool under pressure and delivers great results.

Marco Morales, Sound Designer at Leo Burnett Interactive

Jerry is what I would consider the “perfect freelancer”. I knew his work was outstanding based on his reel, so there was no surprise there. His quality personality and dedication to great design is what really boosts him to the top. I’m looking forward to working with him again in the near future.

Shanaé Paulus, Art Director Think Televisual

I had the pleasure of working with Jerry on my most important career assignment, i.e., my demo reel/manifesto. Jerry is a true professional – responsive and reliable; great at communicating; and is process driven while being creative (there are not many right/left brain people – Jerry’s one of them). I look forward to working with him again, and highly recommend working with him.

Jason Vargas, Principal at Burnham Park

Jerry Nelson is a dedicated and talented designer and animator. I have worked with him on multiple projects and even on those projects that last until the wee hours of the morning he stays positive and committed to quality of the final product. He is not afraid of having to learn new tools or techniques to reach a client or creatives desired result. I can wholeheartedly recommend him.

Kurt Lawson, Visual Artist - Le Generateur

Jerry Nelson is a talented and disciplined designer and animator. Creatively, he has a unique style that originates, in part, from his thorough knowledge of the tools of our trade. Work-wise, Jerry’s patient, and refreshingly ‘no-nonsense’; willing to see through whatever’s required, with a level of quality and efficiency that over-exceeds. In short, Jer is EXACTLY the type of talent that you want on your team…and I’m glad he’s on ours.

Ben Poster, Producer + Shooter / Director + Editor

I hired Jerry to originally create concepts for animated dream sequences for my feature film. What I got was a collaborator who expounded on my initial ideas and brought something new and exciting to my project that I wouldn’t have ever thought of without his expertise. Jerry has a masterful knowledge of motion graphics and animation, and the way he was able to take my abstract thoughts and create something from initial concept through completion was truly refreshing

PROCESS

PRE-PRODUCTION

A good story starts with a solid foundation. Whether you need your napkin doodle turned into a outline or a script visualized into storyboards, I can start you off on the right foot and keep your audience engaged and entertained while meeting your brief.

RESEARCH AND DESIGN

I like to bring together new techniques and design, mixing between live action, organic animation, stop motion, and 2DFX. Each project gives me the chance to think outside the box and push limits creatively and technically.

PRODUCTION

Contemporary problem solving, stylized storytelling, and 2d character animation is my specialty. I have worked with a wide range of blue-chip clients, small start-ups and various mom-and-pop shops to get them just what they need.

FINISH

Whether it ends as a broadcast spot on TV, on the web, or used internally, I’ll make sure it’s delivered with a proper color grade, voice-over, music, and sound design. I understand the importance of compression, encoding and good SEO.

210% After Effects by Anders Hatte

0

Whoa check this video out by Anders Hatte. Everything in this video was done in After Effects apparently even the music which was made using audio effects such as tone and modulation, key framed to create the drums and melody. No plugs-ins or 3rd party apps were used either. Thats pretty dope, considering thebeat isn’t actually bad, and After Effects is not made for audio creation or sequencing. more

Brusspup “Water & Sound Experiment”

0

How’s this for an amazing practical effect. A speaker generates a 24 hz sine wave that vibrates the water while the camera recording at 24 fps make the stream appear to “freeze”. Take it up a notch and it’s a slow motion oscillation.

Wiggles & Robbins “Life Drawing Stop-Motion”

Wiggles & Robbins came up with a great idea to advertise life drawing courses at The Book Club in London. Using photographed stills of the students’ sketches, warm-ups and works-in-progress, they crafted this stop motion video with outward-facing easels set up in a circle. more
