My name is Michael Ricks and I’m an Animator/Motion Graphics Artist from Austin, TX.
I graduated in 2008 from The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Radio-Television-Film. I started out with a focus in Audio Post Production with a little bit of Video Editing thrown in; but after taking an Animation class with Geoff Marslett and then a Motion Graphics class with Arie Stavchansky, I knew what I wanted to do after I graduated. I interned at Shiny Object for about six months and have worked on a number of projects with them as a freelancer since then.
I’m a pretty big nerd. My favorite movie is Star Wars and I enjoy playing video games (especially N64). I love music and have been playing drums since I was 10 years old.
