Cover Letter

Dear Viewer, With over 15 years of experience in the animation industry, as a 2D animator, storyboard artist, and director, I found myself interested in expanding from 2D animation into the world of 3D animation to follow my dream of working on animated feature-length films. Along with my industry experience in multiple styles of 2D animation and storyboarding, I bring my unique artistic perspective, unmatched ability to wear mismatched socks, and passion for storytelling to your team. As Animation Director at Seymour Animation, I had the privilege of collaborating on a 2D animated pilot for a major streaming network. This opportunity allowed me to prove my ability to lead a team, review animation and storyboards, ensure the creator's vision translated seamlessly into the final product, and adapt quickly while maintaining high standards of quality. One particular project that has been a highlight of my career is my role as the Lead Animator, and later Lead Storyboard Artist on ‘Mike Judge Presents: Tales from the Tour Bus’. I had the honor of helping to develop the visual style, developing the animation technique, and visually capturing the stories of legendary musicians through engaging storyboards that brought their tales to life even without a script. This experience has sharpened my storytelling skills and fostered my passion for creating compelling narratives and visual styles. I bring valuable industry experience, a solid foundation in the principles of animation, a keen artistic eye, and an eagerness to learn and grow within this new medium. I have completed the 3D Character Animation program at Animation Mentor, further equipping me with the necessary technical skills to excel in a 3D animation environment. My proficiency in Autodesk Maya, Storyboard Pro, Adobe Animate, and Toon Boom Harmony and my ability to adapt to new challenges and learn new software will undoubtedly prove invaluable as I contribute to your team's success. Thank you for checking out my samples. I look forward to discussing how my unique background and passion for animation can contribute to the outstanding projects at your studio. Thank you, -Nick Bane
