Bekah Shamsa

After graduating from CalArts with a graphic design BFA in 2002, Bekah worked in Los Angeles on music videos and with broadcast clients including HGTV, Spike, FX, E!, and Discovery. She later returned to her native Texas and is now Lead Motion Designer at Corgan MediaLab.

Scott Spengler

Did you know that a powerful love of cartoons, comic books, monster movies and speed metal does not necessarily guarantee you’ll end up homeless and alone? In certain cases it can actually lead to a career in animation and compositing.

After years as a 2d lead, teacher, and animation director for various DFW studios, Scott finally made the leap to full-time freelancer. In 2015 he was invited to join Ackerman McQueen’s Dallas office to fill their newly created post production position.  

Ramsey Ruelas

While still finishing his degree, Ramsey was hired at Dallas commercial studio in 2007 where he quickly went from intern to lead 2D designer. He ventured out on his own in 2011 with a short stint designing for mobile.  As an Independent Motion Designer who helps ad agencies, design studios, & animation houses in tough situations. Combining graphic design with animation principles, Ramsey's work has appeared on screens of all sizes.
