Since March 2014, Senior Motion Designer, Andrew Schummer, brought his expertise to Vérité.
When not glued to the computer he can be found in the kitchen, powering-up with obscene amounts of coffee or walking his puggle, Kita.
His co-workers can attest to his love of caffeine and lumberjack-inspired wardrobe.
“Why do I like working with Andrew? The flannel and aroma of coffee, of course. Oh, and the boy has talent. An enormous amount of talent,” commented Graphic Designer, Courtney Schow.
Fellow Graphic Designer Nikki Hancock added, “Sometimes Andrew dresses like Clark Kent, it brings an air of mystery to the office.”
The introverted and shy Scorpio hails from Western New York, but found himself in Utah for snowboarding and school. He studied Film at the University of Utah with a Business Marketing Minor.
Having studied film and having a desire to work on various art and graphic design projects, it came naturally for him to move into motion design and animation.
“With motion design beginning to move away from interpolated key frames and back towards traditional hand drawn and stop motion animations, there have been several projects recently that I’ve found truly inspiring,” Andrew said.
The One by One video for The Road Home; the promotional video donated every year to help support the non-profit organization, is one of his favorite Vérité projects to date.
Graphic Designer, Trevail Campbell, believes that Andrew’s 3D skills are second to none, giving Vérité an added edge in a competitive field.
Those who work closest with Andrew, joke about his caffeine addiction aside, respect the passion and skills he harnesses. But he’s not just all business, even though the majority of his free time is spent trying to learn new techniques and styles to improve his craft. He kicks back by snowboarding, skateboarding, watching comedies or listening to a wide variety of music.
