Dyson - Animator - Utica, NY, USA

Mark Dyson

Utica, NY, USA


Your brand needs to come to life, and I can make that happen at a price you can afford.

You've tried normal, static branding, now's the time to kick things up a notch or three. I can craft an animation around your logo—make it shine, spin, even build itself—keeping buyers' eyes where they belong: on your brand. Use it in an ad, on your web page—even in an email signature! I can help you leverage the power of animation from something as simple as a flashy intro or closing credit sequence, to some special visual effects for your video—or even a full animated commercial!

If you have a major presentation to make, don't inflict Yet Another PowerPoint on your audience. Together we can craft a memorable animated presentation that will stand out from the crowd!

If you're an ad or marketing agency, I can boost the services you offer your clients without the overhead of having a full-time animator on your staff. I deliver the magic, and you are the hero.

I’m a retired USAF officer based in the Utica area, in the heart of beautiful Central New York. Welcome to Hollywood animation at home town prices! I especially welcome small family businesses and non-profits.
