★ Allister Gainey ∙"BirdKings"∙ 2D Animator ★
Hey! My name is Allister Gainey, but you might know me better as Allister Jones or my alias, "Birdkings". Currently a senior undergrad at the Rochester Institute of Technology aiming for a BFA in 2D Animation, I'm ready take my first steps into the professional world. So far I've completed two films and plan to create many more. I have the most knowledge working in Adobe Animate (Flash) and Toon Boom Harmony-- hand drawn effects and unique characters are especially fun for me to create!
Original series of mine include the Birds of Paradise and Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (based on my junior year film, String Theory). Both are in the concept stage and you can see current character designs and concepts here on my site. Other than those, my original "flash pixel puppets" are a popular seller in commissions and are great examples of what I can do with Flash and Photoshop.
I have been Librarian for the RIT Anime Club (2015-2017), controlling the flow of series into and out of our system of over annually 300 active members. Likewise, I've worked my way up to becoming the first ever Media Director for Tora-Con- RIT's anime convention- leading a team of content creators who develop merchandise, promotions and social media.
With the skills to be both a leader and a learner, I would be an irreplaceable addition to your team.
