3AM Artist Series: Eliza
Introducing the 3AM Artist Series - where we profile local artist in our community. We plan to make this an ongoing series, so if you're someone (or know someone) who would like to be profiled, drop me a line. No cost to anyone, just a way to give a little back to the creative community. more.

The joys of explainer videos
Being a boutique shop gives us an opportunity to work with a wide variety of projects. Sure we like to show off our music videos because we all secretly wanted to be rockstars, but whether it’s conceptualizing a vfx heavy music video under a modest budget or animating a :30 second commercial what we do around here really boils down to one core trait - we are creative problem solvers... more.

3am Design Studio

Founded by Jody Poole and Adam Christl, 3AM Design has been creating content since 2002. From the very beginning we've focused on constructing innovative and cutting edge product for both commercial and artistic endeavors. Our goal is simple: develop compelling and visual narratives by communicating mood, thought, and message. We combine an understanding of story telling, technical savvy and an eye for detail to develop award-winning projects for our clients. We're obsessed with design culture, film making and animation. Our countless late nights spent producing creative works has earned us the moniker of creative insomniacs.

In 2014 we purchased an old woodworking shop and we are in the process of turning it into an open concept 5000 sq. ft. multi-level creative laboratory / artistic sweatshop / production playground. With a blank canvass to work with we decided to break the space up into four distinct units. Our client area / lounge where you can kick back in comfort and have a game or two of NBA 2K13. The rest of the front space is made up of our talented staff's work area. If you're looking for weird toys from foreign lands this is the place to find them. The back half of the studio is being developed into a 2000 sq. ft. custom made shooting studio complete with a double cyc green screen and pre-rigged overhead grid. The space is still a work-in-progress and the plans may change, but we hope to be finished in a few months. Stay tuned.
