Who is Nathaniel Akin?

Everybody needs a vanity domain and this one's mine.

My name is Nathaniel Akin. According to Google there are at least 3 other people on the internet going by the same name: a Baptist, a basketball player and a musician. If you’re looking for any of them, you’re in the wrong place.

I’m the Nathaniel Akin that makes motion pictures, animated TV commercials, broadcast design and the occasional pizza. You’ll find examples of my recent animation, design and direction work at RiotSquad.TV or my company site:

When I’m not making moving images I like to do the occasional painting and play with technology.

2016 – A new year with fresh new pixels

A New Year already!

I just finished up some 8-bit pixel work on a rather great skater-travel show. I’ll post that here as soon as it’s publicly released.

The pixel thing seems to keep on going no matter what year it is, I’m also working on a music video in that same retro pixel game style which, again, I’ll post when it goes public.

In the meanwhile if you’re looking for some nice big blocky pixels, check out my pixel channel on vimeo – chock a block full of that style by all sorts of creative people.

Here’s to a New Year!

I just uploaded "Better Money Habits Q10 Building Credit From Scratch" to @Vimeo:
