Nick McKernan’s path into animation has been one long, inevitable surprise. Hot off the heels of graduating with a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2021, he joined LAI Video with a saddlebag of ambition that only continues to grow. A dynamic maker with the ability to conjure psychedelic grandeur and silky-smooth graphics on a whim, Nick comes to LAI equipped with a toolset for the beautiful and strange. His work has screened both domestically and internationally, and has been featured in Redefine Magazine, Week in Pop, and Stereogum.

Hailing from the wild Midwest, Mike can graphic himself out of a tight spot when necessary.  It’s never necessary because that’s not how life works, but still, he could probably do it.

Under his calm exterior, Anthony is simmering with big ideas and a bottomless reserve of the latest industry trends. He’s LAI Video’s mad scientist: a motion graphics artist, editor, and colorist, with a passion for finding the best equipment or technology to get the job done right. The first time. If there’s a new technique, camera rig, or software plugin, he’s probably experimenting with it right now.

Jun is the Director of Photography for LAI Video. Immediately after he graduated from American University, he began work as a freelance cinematographer and editor. He has been traveling everywhere (including a place called Anguilla) to document special events and create unique images for clients. He also volunteers at the COSMO COUTURE annual charity event in DC, which is committed to eradicating domestic violence for women and children. Jun is detail oriented and strives to achieve the best in his works.

Rob Kramer is a proud member of LAI Video's team as an Editor-Animator-Producer-Videographer (Or edinamodugrapher, an industry term he coined which has yet to catch on- we can't fathom why it hasn't). Like many members of the LAI Video team he is called on for a myriad video tasks but focuses on post production and graphics. He learned his trade at James Madison University. Previously, he worked on commercials and industrials for clients like the U.S.

Motionography, the art of animating graphics, is a burgeoning field. But Tiffany is helping to write the book on it. Her unmistakable style makes otherwise flat statistics and images burst with excitement and life. We're in a world where a 15-second YouTube ad can seem like an eternity, so she labors to design every second of her videos with visuals that are fun, elegant, and engaging. Tiffany has applied this work ethic throughout her career, with a history of clients from the Discovery Channel to the U.S. Army. A prolific creative, Tiffany is also a documentarian and costume designer.

A lot happens on the page before the LAI Video team can bring a project to life onscreen, and Justin Kelly is proud to help shape our award-winning content as LAI Video’s Senior Scriptwriter and Editor. We rely on Justin to help us deliver work that is high-energy and impactful, whether he’s writing for a video shoot, animation, or creating online content for our blog and social media.
