I am Amy Austin

A freelance camera operator, camera assistant, graphic designer, photographer, lighting technician, and grip. Amy has been a camera operator for ESPN at Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. There, she has experience shooting live sports events including football, basketball, volleyball, and soccer. She also worked as a PA for John Gruden’s QB Camp in the spring of 2014. In addition, as a graphic artist, she has 4 years total experience as a UI artist at EA Sports with credits Madden NFL 25 (XBOX 360, PS3), Madden NFL 13 (XBOX 360, PS3), NCAA Football 10 (XBOX 360, PS3), Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (XBOX 360, PS3), as well as the Facebook games Madden NFL Superstars, EA Golf Challenge, and MLB Superstars.

Amy has an Associate’s of Science in Digital Media from Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. She has taken the knowledge she gained at Full Sail and has built upon it by pushing her comfort zone seeking out advanced tutorials, following and emulating the latest design and industry trends, and actively surrounding herself with professionals who push her work to be better day in and day out. She attends seminars and workshops to learn new and different thought processes and work flows, and gain insight into how other industry professionals work. Amy is currently pursuing her second Associate’s of Science degree in Film Production Technology from Valencia College in Orlando, FL.

Amy is a true professional who thrives under pressure and seeks out opportunities that will push her limits and take her to the next level creatively and professionally. She is a great problem solver and works efficiently, striving to get the job done right the 1st time. Amy is constantly thinking ahead to what needs to be done next, actively seeks out more work when her tasks are complete, and is always on the look out for potential problems and solutions before they arise. Long hours don’t get to her, she doesn’t seek out personal recognition, and she handles feedback and negative situations with grace and professionalism. Amy is also pretty good at lightening up tense and stressful situations, when appropriate.

In her limited free time, Amy can be found writing about herself in the third person, practicing photography, surfing, SCUBA diving, taking improv classes at SAK Comedy Lab, and butchering songs at Friday night karaoke. She loves watching television and movies, casually observing the framing, composition, and lighting of each scene. Amy is looking forward to becoming an integral part of the camera, electric, or grip crew on a network television series, and she also wouldn’t complain if she found herself in the credits of feature films.
