COMPANY: Little Big Bang Studios
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR COMPANY?
We are a motion graphics and animation studio based in Santa Fe and Miami. Most of our clients have been in the TV business. We do it all… from stage graphics to title sequences.
WHAT’S YOUR JOB TITLE?
WHAT DOES THAT ENTAIL?
As creative director it entails conceptualizing, developing ideas and collaborating with clients.
As a business owner… well, it would take more space than this article will allow.
WHAT WOULD SURPRISE PEOPLE THE MOST ABOUT WHAT FALLS UNDER THAT TITLE?
The funny characters we meet, and reigning in some of their ideas.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE JOB?
Big picture stuff, hashing out the overall idea in a project and making new business connections.
WHAT’S YOUR LEAST FAVORITE?
When a client insists on going with an idea that’s already been done.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRODUCTIVE TIME OF THE DAY?
Early morning when everyone is asleep.
IF YOU DIDN’T HAVE THIS JOB, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING INSTEAD?
Something to do with science. But I really love my job, so it’s hard to imagine doing something else.
HOW EARLY ON DID YOU KNOW THIS WOULD BE YOUR PATH?
Since I can remember, I’ve always loved art; and when I discovered that I could make art that moves, I was hooked.
CAN YOU NAME SOME RECENT PROJECTS YOU HAVE WORKED ON?
We’ve done lots of new, fun stuff for Santa Fe’s coolest art destination, Meow Wolf. It’s been really exciting to work on something without the restrictions of the corporate world.
WHAT IS THE PROJECT THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?
We branded and created a full motion graphics package for La Banda on Univision. The show was the brainchild of Simon Cowell and FremantleMedia, the people who produce American Idol. That was really a turning point for Little Big Bang, and we were honored to have been chosen to create the show’s look.
NAME THREE PIECES OF TECHNOLOGY YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT.
My Mac, any music player and the espresso machine.
WHAT SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS DO YOU FOLLOW?
Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn
DO YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE YOU WORK?
Can’t work without it! What I listen to depends on the deadline, indie rock on most days and drum-and-bass or punk rock for tight deadlines.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO DESTRESS FROM IT ALL?
I got on long hikes with my family, I play the drums, and wine helps a lot.
