Name: Stefanie Huynh
Job Position: Motion Graphics artist
Current Employer: VHN-TV
What are some things you have worked on: Opening sequences for Boogiezone.com, Family guy backplate, intros for Vietnamese television.
What is the process you go through in doing your art, as well as the types of tools you use: Thumbnails and storyboards are my friends! Even thumbnail storyboards. :D I work a lot with design, so I gotta get a good composition with my sketches. I use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, and Cinema4D (for the 3d aspects).
What inspired you to become an artist: Watching Sailor Moon when I was a wee girl. And reading the Sunday comics in the newspaper.

Any tips you can give: Learn and teach as much as you can! Everyone's capable of doing anything they want as long as they learn and practice it efficiently! Belieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeve in yourself!
