So WHO

 

Am I?

 

 

 I’M A MOTION DESIGN ARTIST BASED IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST OUT OF A RAINY CITY THEY CALL SEATTLE, WA.  
 
 AND I LOVES TO ANIMATE, ILLUSTRATE AND DESIGN MOVEMENT FOR LIFE.
             I'M.. WYATT FEHLHABER 

I REMEMBER GETTING MY HANDS ON A CAMERA FOR THE FIRST TIME. I WAS 12 AND MY FRIENDS PARENTS OWNED A PRETTY AWESOME SONY MAVICA. IT RECORDED VIDEO ON TO THESE HANDY LITTLE FLOPPY DISKS. SO LIKE ANY NORMAL 12 YEAR OLD I SCHEMED A PLAN WITH MY FRIEND. THE PLAN WAS TO ACQUIRE THE CAMERA, ACQUIRE SOME CLAY, AND CURATE A SUPER HIGH QUALITY CLAYMATION FILM. IT WENT PRETTY WELL FOR MY FIRST FILM. I MEAN IT WAS ABOUT 3 SECONDS OF SUPER NOT HIGH QUALITY STOP MOTION, WE MADE A MESS OF MY PARENT’S CARPET, AND THERE MAY HAVE BEEN SOME DISAGREEMENTS ON THE SCRIPT… BUT IT STILL WAS A PIVOTAL FILM. IT BROUGHT ME TO THE LIMITLESS AND IMAGINARY WORLD OF ANIMATION AND MOTION GRAPHICS. THE WORLD QUITE LITERALLY BECAME HOWEVER I MADE IT.

 

AFTER REALIZING THAT EVERYTHING IS FUNNIER, BETTER, AND MORE RELATABLE AS A MOVING ANIMATION I DECIDED TO ATTEND THE ART INSTITUTE OF SEATTLE WHERE I SNAGGED A BA WITH A SPECIFIC FOCUS ON VIDEO PRODUCTION. LYNN SHELDON, ALONG WITH MANY OTHER GREAT EDUCATORS, TAUGHT ME THE REAL INS AND OUTS OF THE VIDEO WORLD. I GRADUATED FROM THAT MAVICA TO A PANASONIC AG-DVX 100 AND I WAS STOKED! I LEARNED HOW ANIMATE, DESIGN, ILLUSTRATE, LIGHT SCENES, OPERATE CAMERAS, AND EDIT VIDEO. I FELT LIKE I HAD FINALLY FOUND MY NICHE.

 

THAT WAS OVER A DECADE AGO.

 

IN THAT BLIP OF TIME I HAVE HAD THE HONOR OF WORKING WITH MULTIPLE CLIENTS & BRANDS WHERE I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CARRY OUT THEIR VISION WITH MY PASSION. ONE OF MY MOST RECENT ENDEAVORS IS TEACHING YOUNG VIDEOGRAPHERS ALL MY TIPS, TRICKS, SKILLS, AND ANECDOTES OVER AT NCAD. BEING ABLE TO TRANSLATE ALL OF  MY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE TO A YOUNGER GENERATION IS TRULY AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE! ULTIMATELY, MY HEART IS IN CREATING 3D ANIMATION IN A 2D WORLD… OR MAYBE IT’S THE OTHER WAY AROUND…EITHER WAY I’M ENJOYING LIFE CREATING, MOVING AND MOLDING

-MAKING THE PERFECT CUP OF COFFEE. I USUALLY USE A CHEMEX OR AEROPRESS. CURRENTLY MY FAVORITE ROASTER IS ANCHORHEAD. AND MY FAVORTIE CAFÉ IS MILSTEAD
