Los Angeles, California
My name is Jeff Schweikart. I am an animator and an editor, living in Hollywood, and have been doing After Effects, animation, editing and design work for over 15 years. For the past 6 years, I have been working full time as a freelance animator. I have done commercial work for Netflix, CBS, Nickelodeon Games, SeeSo, Nexon Games, LG Electronics, The World Famous KROQ radio station, The Kevin & Bean Morning Show, Instagram superstar Jake Paul, and YouTuber Joe Penna aka The MysteryGuitarMan. I have developed an in-depth series of animated children's educational videos for The California Board of Education; as well as serve as animator for the Weeby Award Winning cartoon series, "Gentlemen Lobsters". Recently, I won the grand prize for TV host Conan O'Brien's "Occupy Conan Contest", winning a new car, cash and having my animations featured on TBS. In addition to all of this, I continue to add my own original animations and cartoon parodies to my YouTube channel, gaining over 12,000,000 views and 12,000 subscribers.
Prior to that, I was head of NBC/Universal's Photoshop Department and manager of their Creative Operations Team. While there, I worked on thousands of posters, ads, and DVD/Blu Ray packages for hundreds of movies, including The Fast & Furious Franchise, The Meet The Parents Franchise, The Mummy, King Kong, Ted, Despicable Me, Bridesmaids, Scott Pilgrim, Knocked Up, The 40 Year Old Virgin and countless others. I'm used to a fast paced work environment; plus I'm great with Photoshop and a wiz with After Effects.
I have my own studio and equipment and would be able to handle all aspects of your project, from artwork and design, to editing and animation. I'm a hard worker, fast learner. and easy to get along with. Feel free to contact me anytime.
I have been in the industry since 2011.
