Animation Work

Personal Artworks

I believe that life is all about stories, whether they’re about great adventures or the simple minutiae of life. They make up who we are, what we do, and how we interact with one another.

/

Since the age of 12, I have wanted to apply my passion for storytelling to a career. In my work artistically and professionally, I strive to convey the emotions and experiences of life. I want to share stories in a way that impacts the audience on the most fundamental levels.

/

Originally from Stafford Virginia, I’ve been living in the Bay Area since 2011. I graduated from the Art Institute of Washington D.C. with a BFA in Media Arts and Animation.

/

Inspired by my love of movies, videogames and an influential documentary called Movie Magic, I decided at the young age of 12 that I was going to become a CGI artist, and that’s it. That’s at least what I thought at the time. As an old mentor used to tell me, “Life happens to you when you’re trying to do something else.”

/

My career path has granted me the experience to work not only as an artist, but also to share my passion for telling stories in Sales with customers, Marketing, PR, Branding, managing projects, and raw Product Development. Having the opportunity to work in a variety of different roles and industries has allowed me to see the creative thread in everything. I have a passion for creating narratives that allow my teams, and clients to see their product in new and interesting ways.

/

When it comes to digital art, I’m the most passionate about Animation. Giving something life through motion and telling a story through body language alone truly is a magical experience. Hard surface and organic 3d modeling is still the area I’m most proficient in currently. I also do Graphic Design, Texturing, Lighting, Rendering, and Audio/Video Editing. I always strive to explore new areas of 3D, VFX, AR/VR, coding and game design. Learning new programs, techniques and styles will ultimately make me a more well rounded professional.

About Me

The one thing that I feel has been lost in the advertising field is the work ethic, the dedication to the deadline.Then, every once in awhile, I encounter someone that gets that commitment still. You feel safe entrusting your project to them because you feel they’re signing on with the same level of commitment you are, and to deliver a product that will blow everyone away in the process.
/
Brandon Reddick proved to be one of those people.
/
We hired him (through Vincent Media Group) to animate 2 spots with animated noses and ears for an Ear, Nose and Throat MD practice in Charleston.We were familiar with his daytime work with its extensive technical complexity; we were pleasantly surprised to see he was able to deliver the humor and fun, without losing any of his technical savvy.
/
The project was very complex, the timelines tight and the demands for the best high. Brandon’s attitude stayed as positive from the beginning to the sleep-deprived end. He never lost his involvement in making this the best spot that could be created, never detached and went into auto-mode.
/
The results have spoken for themselves. Our peers awarded them Tellys; our clients have been won over to characters they started off being leery of, and have commissioned another spot from it.We are looking forward to working with Brandon yet again.

“I’ve been working with Brandon for over six years, and I continue to be impressed with his integrity, knowledge and passion. He works hard to do his best, and if he doesn’t know how to do something, he’ll do everything possible to obtain the resources or find whatever software he needs to learn to deliver the job. When deadlines have been tight, or even flat-out unreasonable, he has gone above and beyond to make sure projects are done right and finished on time.

He is consistently pleasant, good-natured and fun. I would not hesitate to hire Brandon and recommend him to anyone needing a highly competent, imaginative designer/animator/technical illustrator.”
