My name is Lori Schkufza and I'm based out of Buffalo, New York. I’m a 2D animator specializing in cut-out style puppet animation. I work primarily in Flash and After Effects, often being responsible for most areas of production from the design of the characters to how they’re broken down into puppet systems and the animation itself. The fun for me is figuring out how to make the best puppet for the job with the least amount of pieces.
I’ve worked in gaming for social media and at design firms on big projects with moderately sized teams. But where I’ve really cut a niche for myself is in working for Universities, research groups and medical labs doing education based work. Animation is a great tool for simplifying elaborate concepts and making them accessible to the average viewer. I’ve had a hand in projects ranging from breast cancer research to the economy and calculus: both the practical math involved and its real world applications.
I'm the animator at Creative Mornings/Buffalo.
