Meet the talented Caresse Haaser! We’ve been lucky to have her as part of our team for the past few months. Now, she’s officially joining us as a full time Production Artist. Keep reading to hear her story:
WHO ARE YOU?
I’m a native Tennesseean (originally from Bristol) who never thought I would end up in Nashville, but I am sure glad I did! I just graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Motion Media Design and Writing.
I visited Fivestone this summer while stopping to visit a friend on my way home from an internship in St. Louis. I was immediately drawn to the studio based on the fast-growing environment and the fact that everyone was so friendly, talented and down-to-earth. Plus, Nashville is an amazing city.
WHY DO WHAT YOU DO?
I grew up with aspirations of being a concept artist and illustrator. After freshman year of college I thought I wanted to major in Painting, then Community Art and then Production Design… I was totally lost. Finally, a friend at SCAD suggested I try Motion Media. Without knowing anything about animation, I went for it! It was the perfect fit. What I love most about this industry is the collaboration and the crossover between different creative fields. I actually get to do illustration for work all the time now, so I think everything’s come full circle.
I have a pet snake. People think that’s either really cool or incredibly weird.
