Welcome! My name is Alan Shisko, and I'm a freelance motion graphics artist working out of Toronto, Canada. I've been very lucky in my career to have had many inspiring teachers, and decided to start this blog to give back to the community that has enriched me both technically and aesthetically. Perhaps my words and images will inspire you to do the same! If you wish, take a minute to view my demo reel at Shisko.com, or view a comprehensive gallery of my past work Here.

"MILG 2" Available Now!

A quick heads up for those who have been asking when my training package is going to be ready... "Making It Look Great" vols. 2 (by me) and 3 (by Harry Frank) are now available from the MILG website! There will be a promo clip up within the next couple of days to give you an idea of what to expect, but in the meantime here is a clip (QT, h264, 15 megs, no audio) of what you'll design as you go through the tutorial.

Viva Las Vegas


I'll be attending the annual NAB convention in Las Vegas on Monday and Tuesday. I'll be hanging out at the Zaxwerks booth both days where I'll be doing the occasional demo, featuring some tips 'n tricks from my "Making It Look Great" training package (available online starting mid-next week). Do drop by if you're in attendance and say 'hi'. I'll also be at the Media Motion Ball on Monday night, where great revelry is sure to ensue.

I'm hoping to report on my NAB findings as I wander the halls, so keep your eyes peeled to this page for the next couple of days!
