Hullo! I'm Alisa. (Uh-Lee-Suh.) I'm an animation artist living and working in New York City. My specialties include stop motion, After Effects, and Photoshop. I also build puppets, props and sets. In the past few years I've worked on many high profile projects in a variety of capacities. I've animated for Nick Jr's “Team Umizoomi,” designed backgrounds for Nick Jr's "The Wonder Pets," directed a marionette puppet music video that was short-listed for a Grammy, and created a nerdy stop motion sensation. Thanks for dropping by!
I've gotten some truly flattering press following the premiere of the latest two Doctor Puppet films. Here are a few articles and interviews.
I've partnered with The Nerdist Network to make more stop motion animated episodes of The Doctor Puppet! I am beyond thrilled about this project. The first two episodes were released to coincide with the premiere of the new season of Doctor Who. More episodes to come!
I directed, designed, and animated this promo for the new Violight SLIM toothbrush, which will be available at a store near you soon! I took photos of the toothbrushes from many angles then composited and animated them in AfterEffects. The music was composed by John Pahmer.
"Come Back Down," the J.Viewz music video I directed with help from Peter Ahern, Matt Witham and Jeff Wallenhorst recently premiered at Spinner.com. We made all the sets and puppets from scratch in a week and a half!
