Hello all,

I am a freelance motion designer/video editor moved to A2 about 3months ago from NY. Looking for any opportunities around the area and also some people I can meet and collaborate on some projects together.
If anyone interested in collaboration or discussing any projects with me please message me! :)

Hey SJ -

Contact Al McWilliams at Quack Media (al at quackmedia.com) or just stop by their office on Main St. sometime (you can say I sent you :-). It's not clear from his site, but they've done a bunch of interesting projects for Comedy Central's Adult Swim, etc.

Jake Beemer and Jacqueline Stahl at Siegemedia (their site seems to be down?) did some great work for our Ann Arbor Skatepark group (see http://www.vimeo.com/...­ ) - they landed here about a year ago from Florida, and might be able to help get you oriented here. I think they've found the film community they were looking for from all the movies being shot here. We even had the 'Mooslim' guys (codename for the Danny Glover film being shot here) looking for space at the Tech Brewery - they used to be in the Google building, next to the SPARK offices (where the UM student TechArb space is now).

Most of what I know of around here is interactive marketing - http://www.iconicweb....­ http://byhook.com...­ etc. Not sure if that's a fit or not, but check in with Derek Mehraban and friends at the weekly LA2M (http://la2m.org...) digital media/marketing lunch event at Conor O'Neill's. The interactive marketing / advertising / web design community here is pretty big, a lot of it traditionally closer to Detroit (Organic.com, Campbell-Ewald, etc.).

There are other online video startups here that might be interesting clients - e.g. Matt Grocoff at http://greenovation.t...­

Also check out the UM Duderstadt Center ("Media Union" - http://www.dc.umich.e...­) who might have some other ideas on what's around here in this area (our next meeting is in the Chrysler Center again).

Best of luck!

Learned of a firm doing this stuff - http://www.theworkthe...­ over in Detroit, who did the video for the Impact Card (presenting at next week's meetup): http://www.youtube.co...­

Also, @BrettWejrowski (a2newtech alum now in Baltimore who just launched http://HelloRent.com...­ - congrats!) also does http://motionspire.co...­ with one of his buddies in Chicago - guessing he might know more folks.

There's definitely agency folks around doing motion graphics. I seem to recall there were some really high-end shops in Royal Oak (doing a lot for the autos) - don't remember their names, though. Someone else might.
