Hi! I am Tehniyat Shaikh, an animation artist that couldn't choose between 2D and 3D. I am originally from India and currently residing in Atlanta as a full time freelancer, turning ideas and scripts into animations. My multi-disciplinary skillset allows me to pitch the best visuals to my clients while not being confined to one medium.
What background you ask?
I completed my MFA in Animation from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2019, during which I learned a variety of ways to help make a story successful at connecting with the people and making them FEEL. I worked on mediums like 2D, 3D, 2.5D and Virtual Reality, accomplishing various roles such as animator, character designer, storyboard artist, illustrator, previz artist, animatic editor, motion designer as well as a director of an award winning 3D animated short film.
In my free time, I like to volunteer for organizations like ASIFA South, participate in art shows meeting new local artists including at Out Front Theater, I love travelling, exploring new places and photograph stories around me. My friends describe me as a good listener, trustworthy, chill and a patient human being (and I didn't even have to pay them).
