James Hoback Motion Graphics

Motion Graphics


Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - United States

I have always wanted to work in film and television since I was a child. Now, I get to live that dream, but I want to push myself further. I'm always learning new skills and keeping up with industry news, simply because, I can't help myself. Even on my days off I have to check the latest blogs and articles for the newest tech.

I always treat my clients with not just respect, but with trust. Many of my clients I have become good friends with and I would like to continue this trend of trust and collaboration.
