Hello, 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.

After 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 two years.

Concurrent 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.

January of 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 sets.

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.
