ANTHONY SERRAINO - Freelance Motion Designer Animator / 2D & 3D / Illustrator
______________________________________________________________________
I was raised in New Jersey, where I went to school at Rowen University for a BFA in illustration. After graduation I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my career as an Illustrator, but instead fell in love with the moving image. I worked full-time at Goodspot and The Cannery over a period of ten years as a motion designer. After getting married, starting a family, and having a great time in sunny California, I decided to go back to my roots and give NYC a try, I’m back in Southern California freelancing.  Since 2007, I have been freelancing and have had the opportunity to work at some great companies.
