ANTHONY ENOS

Anthony recently left his full time Motion Design job to become a freelancer (great timing). Anthony uses (almost) any excuse to use parenthesis when writing. He's certain he's won awards, blaming UPS for not receiving them. While waiting patiently for his awards, Anthony does more (potentially) award winning Motion Design.

BRANDON SUGIYAMA

I wrote a moderately witty bio when I first applied, but it got lost on the interwebs.  Motion graphics makes me happy.  So does spicy food and beer.  When I was a kid, I dreamed of being a garbage man.  How cool would it be to ride on the outside of a huge truck?  I hope no one points and laughs at me during the competition.  I hate when that
happens.
