Dear Steamroller Studios,
Animating for a studio in the industry has been a dream of mine for some time now, and I believe as an animator one needs to understand how to be a part of
a team. Teamwork is what allows us as artists to flourish and understanding how to be a part of a team as close as Steamroller Studios is imperative. My name is
Adam Kania, and I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, with a focus in animation. As an
animator, I’ve been a part of several different teams and even now find myself leading classrooms which gives me the opportunity to understand what it’s like
to be a leader.
I’m currently working with +Mpact Games as an animator, having been a major part in our successfully launched Early Access title, “Hanako: Honor & Blade”.
While I dedicate time towards my passion on one team, I also teach animation to students at Piedmont Community College as a Digital Effects and
Animation Instructor. As I contribute to my own title I’m dedicated to, I’m able to effectively teach others what I’ve learned and give other artists the opportunity
to grow. I feel that with my experience as both an animator and a teacher, I would be a fantastic fit for the animation team at Steamroller Studios.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you. If you desire, please send me a small project so that I may demonstrate my skills.
Relocation is not an issue for me.
