We wanted to make this animation commemorating the Native Americans in our country with the hope that the holiday can unify people of diverse backgrounds and cultures.

We can all celebrate the First People together.

Indigenous People’s Day.

Heres a lil something we made announcing @shakira 's interview for the #GoogleOrgImpactChallenge.

We wanted to create something that appealed to her tribe, and asked ourselves, “Is it cool enough for Shakira to re-tweet?” Turns out, it is!
Our hips may lie, but our animations don't 💅

Last but not at all least, we are celebrating our newest member of the BIEN team, Ally Schuman! From her hometown in Augusta, Georgia she has traveled extensively making long-term stops in France, Sweden, Wyoming and back to France!

Her winding path has led her to LA where she now resides.

As far as favorite foods go, she has to endorse Poké. as it “It has all the best parts of sushi but you can eat it with a fork and it wouldn't be weird.”

When looking for inspiration she turns to the greats, “there are so many talented artists out there and seeing something I love (but I might not be able to do yet) inspires me to work hard.”

In her free time she can be found trying a new HIIT class, challenging friends to a casual game of tennis or a not so casual game of beach volleyball. When not seizing the day, she also “loves relaxing” and “developing personal projects.”

A fun fact and some wisdom from Ally—“I’ve never broken a bone! Living cautiously is key my friends.”

Andrea Gendusa is our newest illustrator and animator here at BIEN. He was born and raised in Turin, Italy but now lives in Barcelona.

“As an Italian guy, my favorite food is ... pizza! No to stereotypes! I don’t have a favorite food; I think food is all good as long as it’s cooked with love. So when I had to choose my career, I debated whether to become a chef or a designer. Eventually, one became my passion for work; the other remained a passion for fun.”

Andrea spent many years looking for inspiration from the outside, especially in the world of design. “This led me to move away from my authenticity and criticize myself, so I decided to stop looking outside and started looking inside. My new source of inspiration has become my soul that vibrates when something resonates with it.”

My favorite creative thing to do is to create projects by mixing different software/techniques but keeping the same graphic aspect. It stimulates me to find alternative ways or learn new things in each project, always trying to get out of my comfort zone a little. That’s how I keep myself motivated.

How’s it goin’ everybody? Today we get to celebrate our talented Animator and Designer, Ale Imondi! Currently he lives in Unquillo, Argentina where he moved to escape the bustle and noise of Cordoba City.

However, plans may soon take him and his family to live in Germany!

As a good Argentinian, one of his top foods is Asado, meat that has been barbecued on a grill. However, as an equally good grandson of Italians he also loves a traditional pizza slice.

Ale is most inspired when out in nature, hanging out with his kids, cooking, baking or connecting with the larger motion graphic community, who in his words “push me to overcome my boundaries.”

While he frequently can be found biking, trekking and mountain climbing with his kids, he also knows the value in taking it easy from time to time. “I also enjoy the weekends, lying on the sofa and watching some Netflix.”

Some fun facts about Ale—“Once I start a book or series, I need to finish it no matter how boring or bad it is.”

Good afternoon people of Facebook, meet Deanna Reilly. She’s one of our amazing illustrators and animators. She’s originally from Ontario, Canada, now living in Dublin, Ireland. “In 2007, I jumped at an opportunity to live in Dublin. I thought it might be a 1–2-year adventure, but I loved the city and the people so much I decided to stay!”

Her favorite food is Poutine. “Because Canada, eh?”

When asked about what inspires her: “My husband and son. Their hilarious antics are a constant source of playful ideas. I also find inspiration in nature, traveling, and immersing myself in new cultures. Embracing serendipity is the best way to get inspired.”

She loves experimenting with 3D. “Combining 2D motion with 3D is joyous for me. I think it’s because there’s so much uncertainty in the process. The unexpected results can be very rewarding.”

Outside of work, Deanna loves playing with Legos with her son, going to heavy metal gigs, and “having the craic” with friends in the pub.

What’s up, Instagram? We want you to meet Alisha Hawkins, our Senior Producer. She is a NC native and now lives in Raleigh.

Alisha is super inspired when people truly have a passion for something. “To see someone pour their soul into something, be it work or a hobby, is genuinely amazing.”

With a background in live-action production, her favorite creative outlet is being on set. “I absolutely love being with the crew and making the difficult happen. I get a definite sense of accomplishment looking at a completed piece and thinking about the pieces of the puzzle I helped put together.”

Some fun facts about Alisha—“I can recite every line to the movie “Wayne’s World” from memory.”

We’re super excited to introduce Elena Dreyer. She’s an Associate Producer at BIEN. “I’m from San Francisco, but I currently live in Los Angeles. After living all over the west coast, east coast, and eventually in London, I decided to return to my Californian roots and landed in LA due largely to it being a hub of the motion graphics industry. Well, that and for the tacos.”

Before joining BIEN as a producer, she worked as a freelance motion graphics animator. “I’m looking forward to LA opening up because I have missed the life drawing sessions that are usually available in the community.”

Fun fact about Elena. “I wore lederhosen to the grocery store yesterday.”

In the past decade, the global refugee population has almost doubled. 68% of the world’s refugees come from just 5 countries, totaling over 79.5 million forcibly displaced. These trends show no signs of slowing, as climate change, violence and conflict, food shortages and poverty remain. Investing in resettlement strategies and creating safe routes to sanctuary is paramount for the vulnerable people caught in the balance.

Asylum is a human right.

Sometimes the roughest animatic can be fun to watch, too. We use animatics to work out the kinks before spending too much time on actual illustration and animation. It helps us and the clients minimize wasted time as well communicate the vision to the creative team so we're not working in silos.

Collaboration alert - This Thursday we're teaming with Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and bien for a panel on how to do business with Facebook during the Business Builder Los Angeles 2021 LA County Business Matchmaker event.
Wondering about the state of Inclusive Motion Design? One of our supplier community members bien interviewed 10 diverse illustrators, motion designers, and animators from around the world to get the "boots on the ground" scoop. Check out the articles published in the latest print and online issue of Communication Arts Magazine which features insights shared by diverse creatives with bien Executive Producer Ricardo Roberts.
We’re excited to share our participation in Boost with Facebook Summer of Support – a six week program of training and thought leadership for businesses. This week’s focus is “Customers and & Commerce” and our team collaborated with bien and Smart Simple Marketing to share their experience on what it’s like to be a diverse supplier for Facebook. Watch our “Journeys In Supplier Diversity” session and stick around for more cool tips on how to grow your business.
We recently launched DSUL, an internal platform for discovering diverse suppliers. Powered by Supplier.io (https://supplier.io/), DSUL enables supplier searches by keyword and common categories, smart lists of curated suppliers, results filtering by supplier location and more. DSUL integrates seamlessly with our internal procurement tools allowing buyers to raise purchase requests directly from supplier profiles, include them in RFPs, or invite businesses to onboard if they are not already Facebook suppliers. Learn more about Facebook Supplier Diversity and register your business as a prospective diverse supplier for possible inclusion in DSUL @ https://www.facebook.com/suppliers/diversity. DSUL logo and video created by @bien (http://thisisbien.com/), an inclusive motion design studio.
Congrats Le!!!
