My name is Alex Pappas. I am currently an Animation student from Tinley Park in my second semester at Bradley University. I attended high school at Lincoln-Way North High School.
My interests lie predominantly in preproduction work, such as storyboarding and concept art. In my free time I enjoy reading, and watching Netflix. I have experience in a wide variety of Adobe products including Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Audition, InDesign, Acrobat, and Story.
I am inspired by animation studios such as ufotable, and Studio Trigger. I also really enjoy watching animations done by smaller indie studios since I find it really cool what such a small team of people can accomplish. While I don't have any interest in it as career field stop motion animation fascinates me, and the amount of precision that goes into them are amazing. Among stop motion movies Kubo and the Two Strings, the 2016 movie done by LAIKA, was very cool.
Also, while I am an animation major I am interested in games, and hope that I can learn some useful skills from that area that I can apply to animations. I also hope to take some creative writing classes while I'm at Bradley too.
A weekly challenge done for DAT BU. It was completed in 2016. The pallet used is #FEE15D, #B77B3D, #8A372B, #711421, #271710. The character depicted is Kenma Kozume from the animated tv show Haikyuu.
My first freshman animation. It is a fantasy parody of the 2004 comedy 'Mean Girls'. It was completed in 2016. This animation was created using Adobe After Effects and Media Encoder. The art assets (characters and backgrounds) for the animation were created using a combination of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
My first game project. It is an endless runner that was completed in 2016. The player plays as Teddy who has to run laps around the White House, while dodging obstacles, to stay in shape. The game was made in Stencyl, while the art assets were created in Adobe Illustrator.
