Hi I'm Marvin Te, owner and creative director at Plainly Simple, a motion design studio based in the Philippines. I have worked on more than 500 projects over the past 10 years. I'm a self taught animator and when I started I was really bad at it. But with determination and grit I was able to improve my craft and have deepened my understanding on animation. And one of the reason that I am teaching is that I want to help beginners understand this wonderful craft. And it's one of my goals to make complex topics easier to understand. Hence the name of our studio - Plainly Simple.
