my name is David Lopez. I have 5 years of experience in Motion
Graphics / Multimedia Graphic design. I have worked on over 40
broadcast motion graphic projects the majority of which where
DVD motion menus. I have experience in Blu-ray motion menu design
and have worked on a hand full of titles in BDJ format. I am not
limited to DVD work as I have also worked in the field of Real-time
3D Graphics for Broadcast Sports and have worked on interactive
games for Direct TV.
I started my career
in Multimedia Graphic Design in April of 2003 at Motorcycle.com,
one of the first online magazines of its kind established in 1994.
There I did web editing for motorcycle review articles along with
updating the design of the site layout.
In 2004, I went on
to Crest National, one of the world’s leading media facilities
with 45 years of video experience and became Quality Control Inspector
for DVD discs. Six months later I was promoted to Motion Graphics
Designer for interactive DVD menus.
spending a year in that position, I went on to become the Lead
Motion Graphics Designer for Cloud 19, a full-service DVD production
and post-production studio located on the Westside of Los Angeles.
The bulk of my motion graphics / DVD menu design experience was
obtained at Cloud 19, where I worked on over 20 DVD titles in
with my employment at Cloud 19, in 2006 I took on a freelance
job for Reality Check Studios as a “Viz Artist” doing
real-time 3D graphics for broadcast sports and was trained on
the job for that position. Some of the clients were CBS, ESPN,
NFL Network and CCTV.
2007 I went on to become a Motion Graphics Designer & Production
Artist of DVD Menus/Games for ZOO Digital Group (formally Scope
Seven). There I worked on such interactive titles as “Disney’s
Hannah Montana Mattel” DVD Game, “Shrek Swamp Party”
DVD Game and “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?”
DVD Game. I also worked on interactive DVR games for Direct TV
such as “Mad Gab Mania”. My first experience with
HD DVD was on the “300” movie title game Zoo Digital
was contracted for.
At the end
of 2008 I took a freelance job at Technicolor to do production
art work on such Blu-ray titles as “The Bourne Trilogy”
and the “Battlestar Galactica” session box sets that
have been released so far on Blu-ray.
March of 2009
I joined Georgopoulos Design Environments as a freelance motion
graphics design artist to help design and create both Blu-ray
and Standard Definition DVD menus for Grey’s Anatomy: The
Complete Fifth Season and Scrubs: The Complete Eighth Season box
Some of my
strong working points are that I excel at on the job training
and I pick up well on new techniques and software being used.
I pay attention to detail since I have spent time as a Quality
Control Inspector. I am not afraid to work long hours in a production
studio to meet harsh deadlines.
I am currently
available for freelance or fulltime employment.
