FAILURES AND SUCCESSES OF 2015

This year has been an amazing year at Already Been Chewed although it has not been without its ups and downs.

AS A STUDIO WE...

  1. Faced adversity when we lost our largest client at the beginning of 2015 and several regular clients spent A LOT less than years prior. Previously we were in a constant state of growth and for the first time ever, had to overcome ups and downs of incoming work this year. Shout out to Business Manager, John Davidson and Account Developer, Donny Smith for helping to back fill our schedule with some of the most exciting projects in the history of ABC! Many of these projects will release in 2016!

  2. Successfully launched an Apprentice program. We’ve had 2 Apprentices this year that have taken on the 6 month crash course of gaining work experience at Already Been Chewed. Our first apprentice, Chris Dykes, moved here from Full Sail University and after completing his Apprenticeship, landed a job here in DFW doing motion graphics for a production company. Mark Wilson, is our 2nd apprentice and he’s over half way through the program and has big things planned for 2016!

  3. Learned a lot from each other this year and pushed our knowledge of Cinema 4D much further than in years past. Thanks in part, to our lead animator, Bryan Talkish, for accelerating the learning curve around here.
