Michael Lynam bio
I’ve been working in creative video production for about 6 years now. The past 3 years I’ve found a passion for animation and creating explainer videos. I currently work at Amazon.com creating animated explainer videos everyday for internal use. I’m an expert in the Adobe suite and spend most of my time animating within After Effects. My skills range from animation to all aspects of production. Concepting, script writing, storyboarding, animatic creation, SFX, Voice over work, and comprehensive editing.
