Hi! I’m Lorena Mitchell, Digital Media Creative. I recently graduated in May 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Digital Media, concentrating in Motion Media. I blur the lines between art and technology by combining traditional animation techniques with persuasive storytelling for unique social media experiences.
The path that I took to get to this point in my life wasn't very smooth. Art has always been a passion of mine, but I didn't pursue it when I graduated from high-school because I didn't think that I could make a career out of it. This lead to me attending the Georgia Institute of Technology as an Environmental Engineering major for freshman year. I wasn't very happy during my time there, and a family emergency had me returning home at the end of the school year. I ended up taking a little time off and attended Lone Star College where I rediscovered my passion for art and sparked my interest in animation. However, I still wanted to obtain a four-year degree and gravitated towards the Digital Media program. I've learned a great deal about film and animation, and I've also gained some knowledge about print, web design and packaging design.
Some of my other interests besides art include making terrariums, watching wrestling, visiting museums and attending fan conventions.
Because of my interest in film and animation, I want to help companies express their mission in unprecedented and compelling ways. Please visit my portfolio to see some of my work!
