Nice to meet you!
I'm Melanie! I am a recent grad of Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. In May I graduated with honors, earning my BFA in Digital Arts, emphasizing in Art Direction and minoring in Film Studies. I recently moved to LA and finished an internship this summer at Moving Colour, an animation studio based in the Downtown Arts District of Los Angeles. Passionate about the industry since Blue's Clues, I am currently pursuing entry-level positions in visual development and animation production.
- NEW During my internship at Moving Colour I cleaned-up and colored rough animation on a large scale project for Syfy25: Origin Stories series. Check it out!
- Collaborated with SYFY WIRE, part of the Syfy Channel to promote Luc Besson's "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets." The piece was promoted in a special featurette, with a special guest appearance by the director himself!
