Hullo! I'm Alisa. (Uh-Lee-Suh.) I'm an animation artist and director living and working in New York City. My specialties include stop motion and After Effects animation, as well as puppet making. I've worked on many high profile projects in a variety of capacities. I've animated for Nick Jr's “Team Umizoomi,” designed backgrounds for Nick Jr's "The Wonder Pets," and created a stop motion series for YouTube. Thanks for dropping by!
I have a brand new reel for the new year! Most of this animation is from the past year.

I've partnered with The Nerdist Network to make more stop motion animated episodes of the Doctor Puppet! I am beyond thrilled about this project. The first two episodes were released to coincide with the premiere of the new season of Doctor Who. More episodes to come!
I directed, designed, and animated this promo for the new Violight SLIM toothbrush, which will be available at a store near you soon! I took photos of the toothbrushes from many angles then composited and animated them in After Effects. The music was composed by John Pahmer.
"Come Back Down," the J.Viewz music video I directed with help from Peter Ahern, Matt Witham and Jeff Wallenhorst recently premiered at Spinner.com. We made all the sets and puppets from scratch in a week and a half!
