Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Malik O. Smith

Student

Bronx, NY, USA
I am currently enrolled at the Maryland Institute College Of Art(MICA). My interest has always been in the arts which influenced my decision to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Animation. I have completed three years at MICA and will be entering my final year in August. I am on schedule to graduate in 2014

Since I began my studies at MICA I have become more proficient in the following areas:
•2D animation
•3D animation
•stop motion
•digital storyboarding, paintings and illustrations

Most of my work are done with the following programs/software: Adobe Creative Suite, 3DS Max, and old fashioned pencil and paper.

I build on knowledge gained at MICA by interning on projects with individuals in the industry. On these projects I performed my assigned task using a variety of programs used in making make digital media.

My short term goal is to secure a position with a major studio where not only will I have the opportunity to learn , but also to contribute to the production of great animation. My hope is that the foregoing will move me closer to achieving my ultimate goal of being in charge of a major studio producing a long running television series.
