NASHVILLE— Award-winning motion
graphics designer and animator Erik Edmondson has joined the creative team at Filmworkers, Nashville. The arrival of
Edmondson, whose work spans commercials, broadcast design, title treatments and
graphics, will allow Filmworkers to expand its menu of services, adding design
and animation to its core post production offerings, which include editing,
color correction, visual effects and editorial finishing.
Edmondson has already completed several projects for
Filmworkers, including three fully-animated commercials for the Tennessee
Lottery and Nashville agency The Buntin Group. He also contributed to a
commercial for Alameda Health System and produced type animation for
HealthSpring.

“We’re very excited to bring Erik and his artistry to
Filmworkers,” says Robert Zimmerman, the facility’s executive producer. “He
consistently hits it out of the park in terms of creative execution and always
works hard to ensure the work exceeds the client’s expectations.”

A Nashville native, Edmondson has worked as a freelance
designer and animator for the past several years serving corporate clients,
broadcasters and advertising agencies. He collaborated with Filmworkers on
several projects including an ad campaign for Verizon and Birmingham, Alabama
agency O2 Ideas. Additionally, he recently won an Telly Award for his work for
DNA Creative Marketing, Nashville, and its client Permobil.
Edmondson’s background also includes 10 years as a graphics
designer and animator for Nashville television station WKRN, where he worked on
a variety of news, sports and entertainment shows. During his time with the
station, he won four local Emmy Awards for graphics design for the station’s
broadcasts of Tennessee Titans games, alongside ten Emmy nominations.
“The variety of projects I’ve had an opportunity to work on
has been exciting and rewarding—as has helping my clients achieve their
vision,” says Edmondson. “It’s fun to help people solve problems.”
Edmondson adds that, at Filmworkers, he’ll be able to take
on larger and more complex projects by teaming with other members of the
creative team, who include colorist Jimmy Cadenas, editor Adam Little and
editor/visual effects artist Tim Moore. “We have the tools and talent to tackle
any task,” he insists. Edmondson’s skills include Adobe AfterEffect, Cinema 4D
Studio and XSI/SoftImage 3D.
This latest move caps a strong year for Filmworkers,
Nashville. The facility has produced Emmy Award winning commercials for
Tennessee Lottery and Chinet, as well as the TobyMac video Eye On It (a Dove Award winner for Short Form Video), and videos by
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, CMT Award winners, respectively, as Male
Vocalist of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. Recent projects include
Garth Brooks’ Live from Las Vegas DVD
included in his Billboard chart topping album Blame it All on My Roots and a bonus DVD included with the
remastered Roy Orbison album Mystery Girl.
Zimmerman expects further growth now that design and
animation have been added to the mix. “It fills a need in this market,” he
says. “Erik’s expertise opens new avenues for us with our clients in Nashville
and the Southeast, particularly when we combine what he brings with Tim’s
experience in visual effects and compositing. It puts us into a place occupied
by no other facilities in this market. We have it all under one roof.”
