Geoff Bock Motion + Design
I started my career as a film major at San Francisco State University. I followed SF State by going to UCLA to pursue my passion for design. After graduation, I worked my way up through the studios and agencies of Los Angeles where I became an art director in the entertainment industry. I also composed film scores that I saw come to life on screens in L.A. and Paris. I left the west coast for New York, where I continued to work as an art director & designer with media companies and agencies, but I wanted to work more with the disciplines that I had always loved such film, art, sound, and music, so I enrolled at NYU and concentrated on motion graphics and animation. While at NYU, I had the opportunity to study at the Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany where I helped create a multimedia performance on the original Bauhaus stage. I received my Bachelors of Science in Digital Communication and Animation, graduated magna cum laude, and was chosen by the NYU Deans as my class representative on the Yankee Stadium stage alongside President Bill Clinton and Clive Davis. And here I am. There has never been a more exciting time for content creation and the possibilities for distribution and saturation are limitless. I look forward to helping you develop and deliver the most compelling content possible to and for your audience.
