Andrew Lawler

Motion Graphics Producer

Born in the woods of the far off land they call Columbia, Missouri, Andrew is a super-energetic and outgoing video editor, known for talking non-stop while writers work in vain to finish their stories. When it comes to editing, his strengths include speed, coloring, and over-heating computers to ridiculous degrees. Off the clock Andrew enjoys playing video games, watching television, and staring blankly in corners for hours on end.
