Client loved what we sent last night!
Gail Von Dedenroth, Producer
Nathaniel Akin’s lighthearted short film plays out entirely using old school typewritten ASCII art, and does a shockingly good job conveying its story and sense of humor despite its minimal characters.
Nathaniel is amazing. Patient, insightful, talented, organized, great with clients, a natural manager of varied personality types, and with a perfectly weird sense of humour.
Bruce Alcock, Creative Director - Global Mechanic
Nathaniel is the kind of director that you wish you had on every project.
Michael Mann, Creative Director - Mannkind Design
I worked with Nathaniel on a project which required his creativity and resourcefulness. He came through (and on time) on every front.
Leslie Hall Pinder, Author - Bring Me One of Everything
Nathaniel is a fantastic lead animator with creativity to burn and terrific ability to manage multiple deliverables at once. He is a super-talented, fun and focused team player with a rare right brain/left brain balance that results in out of the box creative on time and on budget.
Deb Haller, Executive Producer - 3 Chicks Media
The spot was approved by the client so we are in good shape. Thank you for your proactivity throughout this process. You are great to work with.
John McGuigan, Partner - MCDB Group

Gail Attara, CEO - GI Society
