Hi, and thanks for dropping by, my name is Manuel Martin, I am an Art Director / Motion Designer and below are two key moments in my life (In third the person for some reason) that will help you define my creative intentions and vision.

1. The year is 1986 the place is a Pre-School in Cumaná, Venezuela, a very small and extremely cute Manuel is handed a coloring book and some crayons. After carefully and inquisitively looking over the line art the tiny Manuel decides that he would not be bound by the paradigm but would try to go beyond, to the point where he was both ridiculed for his green skies and red hills and scolded for not following direction. Rules are meant to be broken.

2. It is now 2013, it's been 4 years since Manuel founded his own studio the socio-political tensions of the country had reached a critical point yet in a chaotic situation he made it work. Manuel was contacted by the government he had always protested, they wanted his creative services. The amount of money they were offering was more than 10 fold what the studio made in a year it could solve so many problems, yet he could not shake the sickening taste of hypocrisy and how he would be part of the very problems he had always protested, yet he needed the money, and in the end business is business right...? Absolutely not! He rejected the job, furthermore provided some suggestions as to where they could shove their money. Business is not just business.

Manuel is has been freelancing in numerous roles (Art Director, Motion Designer, Illustrator, Animator) for more than 4 years collaborating with many agencies, studios, and brands Worldwide. Read Less
