Builds Motion and Still Graphics for Two TV Programs

Geoffrey Garrett is a production assistant at Quarter Moon Production in San Antonio, Texas. He is responsible for building motion and still graphics for the TV programs "Film Flickers" and "Sports Weekly." Geoffrey is proud to be an integral part of the programs’ development. “As soon as I have the script [for a show], I begin to build the graphics for the segments that need them.”

Geoffrey is inspired to create professional, “flashy” work. “My classmates pushed me to be a better artist, and encouraged me to push myself harder to go beyond my limits,” he says, adding that each day on the job is different. “It’s not the same old dull routine.”

Geoffrey keeps on top of tech trends and says that “technology and software comes and goes like the tide on a beach, but the thing that remains constant is the skills and knowledge to produce professional results. The knowledge of how to do something is more important than knowing the software.”

Geoffrey, who in 2015 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts & Animation from The Art Institute of San Antonio, says that his education provided a strong foundation for his career. “The fundamentals that were burnt into my mind play a part in every day work and each project I work on. Migrating into the workforce was seamless thanks to the terminology and work ethic I gained while I was a student.”
