Steve Lucin ’08
Animator, Gentile Entertainment Group; Freelance Designer, Halucinated Designs
interests and career path definitely evolved, especially after getting my MFA
for Design & Technology at Parsons: The New School for Design. The EMAC program definitely prepared me for
graduate school because it gave me an excellent foundation for a graphic design
career. I learned what it takes to create traditional graphic design (logos,
business cards, etc.) and how to present them professionally, as well as how to
make and take critiques.
I am currently a part-time animator for Gentile Entertainment Group, where I composite/animate photos and footage along with motion graphics that I create for pitch package trailers. Most of the animated trailers I design are for upcoming documentaries or TV series; some of them are for published novels. I also teach graphic design and 3D animation to high school students in East Harlem (NYC) at an after school program, the East Harlem Tutorial Program. Additionally, I am freelancing my web designs, print designs and other motion graphics through Halucinated Designs (spelled with one "L" because it's a play on my last name, Lucin).
